Paint in Italy Workshop: August 3 - 10, 2014: Info

Just a quick post. For Sunday's portrait session, Mark -- dressed in revolutionary soldier gear came to sit for the class -- and this time I snuck in some time to paint in between teaching. Couldn't resist.

It's not often that a revolutionary soldier crosses my path.

The class did SO well.  In today's Still Life class, too.

Thank you for reading!
