Patrick Saunders Fine Arts Plein Air Painting Workshop - Richmond, Virginia - Group Photo

Kimberly and I had a great time in a city we love catching up with old friends and making some new ones.

My thanks to Patti Harris for organizing my plein air workshop, and to her and Cabell Harris for hosting us. It was wonderful to see you both again. You are an incredibly talented creative team and just being in your company is inspiring.

My thanks also to everyone in my class for coming out to paint with me in Richmond, Virginia. You braved the heat and worked hard. Keep at it. - Patrick

Patrick Saunders Fine Arts Painting Workshop Demonstration - Indiana Workshop - Day Five

We have officially retired this photo reference series from the Patrick Saunders Fine Arts demonstration painting rotation as of today. Patrick lets the artists in his workshops choose the images for his demos from photos, and scenes of Neah Bay, Washington have been such a popular choice that Patrick has painted them a number of times now.

We actually don't ever get tired of these scenes ourselves, because the whole Makah Reservation area is of the most beautiful places in the country, in our opinion, and it brings back great memories, but it's time now for some new boats reference. Good thing we're headed to Easton soon!
