I've just returned from San Francisco and the Traveling Sketching™ Workshop taught by Richard Scott. What a great experience it was, marvelous classroom instruction in the morning, practical plein air experience and critiques in the afternoon.
The first day I had a life and death struggle with the fountain pen. The second day I relaxed and went back to my trusty Micron for the ink work. Surrounded by such an enthusiastic and friendly group my misgivings about working outside in public were nonexistent. I plan to do much more of it and build on what I've learned.
A bonus to the trip was a fun visit with my son, Andrew, and his wife, Genevieve, who live in San Francisco!
Here's a sampling of what I did in the workshop.
