Paint Out at Castaway Island Preserve

I met up with some fellow FCPS pastelists this morning at Castaway Island Preserve to do some painting outdoors. I did five 5×7″ studies, the last one with some help from Deb, our inveterate club blogger and web mistress. I think my favorite is the people fishing on the floating dock by the boat launch. I completely forgot to put fishing poles in their hands until Steve mentioned they looked like they were all peeing. Hah! Details, details…
