Our plein air group had a work shop with Jerry Ross this weekend. It was lots of fun. If you don't know his work, he advocates stopping before the painting reaches what would be traditionally a finished state. This maintains the original freshness and vigor of the sketch. This was my first try from a photo he had taken in Italy. I love this one. The placement of the figures, their silhouettes against the sea and sky. But I can't bring myself to think of it as a painting that can be framed and hung on a wall.
