I spent a good portion of the day, Sunday out in the county at the John R Park Homestead with members of the Windsor & Essex County Plein Air Society. Yes, after seemingly eons of missed dates I finally got to be with this great group of artists. Tony was among the many displaying period workmanship at during the four hour long Blueberry Social and Lost Arts Festival. The challenge was in drawing moving subjects. The perfect pose was struck and restruck only to be lost again because these are not models they are folks hard at the fun of enjoying their craft, not to mention the general public getting ‘in the way’ (as they are supposed to do) as they vie to see what’s going on. I love the challenge!
Tony and I even managed to get in a little chit chat while I drew him. You can see his craft here.
Again, I was so happy to finally meet up with some of the folks of the local Plein Air Society and I look forward to getting to work/play with them again and to learn, share and grow.
