‘Cotswolds, England’, through Coastal Maine Art Workshops
May 3-13, 2017
This will be a plein air workshop experience to cherish for a lifetime! I have been heavily influenced
by the British watercolor painters and am very excited to visit this beautiful, pastoral area that inspired many
of their finest paintings. Hope you can join me, you can find information at www.CMAWorkshops.com.

I painted another version of this en plein air as a demo while teaching in Boston this summer.
My goal was to show the students that, despite being surrounded by the impressive Trinity Church, Hancock Building and Boston Public Library, you can find something to paint that is just as interesting by focusing in on a ‘slice of life’, using Copley Square as a backdrop. I tried to simplify the ornateness of the entry to the church as well as its reflection in the Hancock Building in order to keep the focus on the ice cream vendor with figures milling about.
