Painting Summer School with Gregory Smith

Today is the second lesson, we drove to Arundel Bridge, Maribyrnong River, about 30 min drive west of Melbourne. 

It was going well at the beginning, I thought, but, it got very windy and I had a big trouble holding a panel as I painted. 

I put too much medium, the painting got very oily, as a result of that, I had difficulty of controlling the paints. 

Then, a nightmare, my easel was blown away by a gusty wind and collapsed on a ground. 

To my horror, my painting got lots of dirt all over the place! 

Never to give up, I decided to carry on. 
I put a panel on a ground and did more work. I don't think it was a good idea, but I didn't want to stop. 

Well, I ended up this mixed media painting, titled "Bridge over troubled water". This is really bad. 

Greg did a fantastic demo again. I learned a lot. 

Unfinished. 16 x 20 in.
