"Eglon Beach" Jim Lamb workshop, pleinair landscape painting,

Third day of the workshop we got down to a great location by the water on a little out of the way beach with a view of Mt. Rainier. Jim emphasized again the importance of designing your space and unifying the composition with color and value. We started out with a two hour demo and I did my best to apply what I learned. Basically I painted the same scene in the same manner that Jim did. (His was a lot better). His suggestion to me was to push the color which I did and I think that improved the work.
Jim's starting to block in his under-painting for the demonstration.

The gang watching the progress....I think we all learned that you need patience to produce a good painting.
