St. Vincents plein air…

May 19, 2009

Went out on Sunday with the newly coalescing North Bay Painters group…more details on their site:

It had to be around 90 degrees yesterday. As I was drawing, my shady spot was swiftly shrinking – but the light on the buildings was improving :) I stuck around long enough to entirely overwork the right side of this sketch. SO, here it is, cropped to the more interesting area :)

This is St. Vincent’s school for boys. Quite an impressive mission style complex – pretty much defining the term ‘nestled in the hills’ a few miles north of San Rafael. It really is a peaceful spot. Old grape arbors, tree lined lanes, and various interesting religious statuary placed among the rocks and trees…

    haha, don’t worry about the comment man. It’s good that someone does something else than just giving compliments. In fact you’re right, i think her face is good.. but her outfit makes no sense :) I should completely redo that body.
