This sketch was painted at Colorado Rail Road Museum in Golden. The day was partly cloudy and so chasing the light was an interesting task. The challenge of measuring more and painting less is a chore that will take some time becoming proficient at, but there are signs of improvement. This painting will also be reworked as some of the shapes are just not interesting. The sun would come out and I would take my jacket off and then it would go behind a cloud and the jacket and gloves would be put back on. Doug Dawson's ASLD class was at the museum at the same time as the PAAC group. What a fun group of people. I got to talk to some people that I haven't seen in a while, like Doug, Wayne, Norbert, and even spoke with Leslie. Good to see her out again. A watercolorist in the PAAC group said she couldn't paint because her paints froze to the brush. She said she forgot the glycerin. Fun, fun, fun.
