These photographs are from my landscape workshop this weekend. On Saturday we painted at the Carmel Lagoon. It started as a glorious morning of sunshine but by the afternoon the fog rolled in changing our light dramatically. On our second day we painted at the Carmel Mission. After two days of plein-air painting, I think we all were exhausted but it was a good feeling of exhaustion. A feeling of a hard days work and braving the elements.

It was nice to meet you at the CAC Gold Medal Exhibition. Your not kidding when you say "challenge", the wind blew the easel over after I removed the palette, covering about 1/5 of the painting with sand. I had to scrap the sand off in my studio and touch it up to get it back to its original state. Thanks for your comment.
