AeroDynamic Aviation, San Jose, Thursday, April 17, 2014

Watching all of the activity at AeroDynamic Aviation, I suspect flying an airplane of one's own must be great fun --- maybe a close second to painting them with a group of wonderful artists.   Which is what we did when Watercolor Society member Marion Podolski hosted us at her husband's Reid-Hillview Airport flying school for a day of painting.

With lots of activity and planes moving around constantly, a number of us chose to paint an old aircraft with three flat tires figuring it wouldn't be going anywhere anytime soon ...

Here we are at work:

This old Cessna Bird Dog provided under-wing shade for my first painting so I thought I'd pay it back by painting its portrait for my second.     Brad

 Meanwhile, back in the hangar, Leslie and Marion found interesting non-flying subject matter  ... 




Then a long lunch and "critique" in a shady spot:

Then the drive home - how prosaic after watching airplanes taking off and landing all day.
