We had a glorious day of sunshine in a lovely spot today. I'm pleased to say that a lot of good work was accomplished. The class, which was to end at 1 p.m., continued on 'til three.
Here's a shot of some close-up tutelage, featuring CS and CMJ.
I, for one, was a tired fellow by the end. I'll refresh myself tonight by watching others work in Minnesota.
But, before I do that, I want to remind some of the workshop's students of Dennis Miller Bunker (1861-1890).
Here are some of Bunker's paintings of motifs much like that we encountered today. Of special interest is how he dealt with the grass in the foreground.
Most of these, if not all, were painted in Medfield, MA. You may have noticed that Bunker died at just 29 years old, his death coming just 75 days after his wedding.
And finally, a Bunker of which I'm very fond, Brittany Town Morning, Larmor, and a John Singer Sargent sketch of Bunker painting, at Calcot in England.
What does Bunker have on his head...a handkerchief? Or is it a cap?
Get to bed early if you're one of tomorrow's students. Lotsa work to do!
