PAP-SE Workshop in Charleston SC - Part 2

     For Day 3 we returned to Shem Creek to watch the very entertaining Larry Moore create one of his famous boat scenes from the dock.  He is a master of drawing lines that follow the rules of perspective to create believable weather-beaten fishing boats.

     Each of these three masters imparted so many wonderful techniques to use.  It is now our duty to study and paint, paint and paint some more!

     It was exciting to meet so many PAP-SE members at the Wet Paint Show on Friday night which showcased all their efforts that they created all week long.  Their beautiful paintings were in three different galleries along Broad Street.  Again it was so exciting to see their beautiful creations in person.    

      This workshop was a great excuse to reunite with four friends.  We had taken a workshop in Atlanta back in 2012 and this was a good way to reconnect with them and spend some good ART time with them. We ate our way through Charleston and sampled the delights at Magnolias, Slightly North of Broad, Vickery's, Water's Edge and Eli's Table.  We even made a late-night run to River Street Sweets near the market for some pralines!

     It was an incredible week and I am so blessed to have had this experience.  It was exhausting but SO MUCH FUN.
