September 10, 2009 saw 5 of my students choosing to paint again in the tiny village of Damme (home of the windmill we painted the first day). I love this photo because it shows just how friendly small town folk are when they see an artist at work. I have experienced this same reaction in small villages in France, Italy, Bali and in the good old USA.
Teresa chose to take one of the hotel's bicycles and petal into Brugge for a day of exploration, shopping and probably some chocolate tasting. Bonnie chose to stay at our lovely hotel and paint a still life she loves in the dining room, and finish other paintings she did earlier in the week. I'll post some of her paintings later.
Helping Margaret with her painting of the houses on this cute little street.
Linda, Sylvia and I found a cute little white house with great shadow shapes across from a little park where we could sit under shade trees. There was a cold wind gusting a lot, so we did not really need the shade.
Here is Sylvia's painting, she is not finished yet, but it is coming along so nicely I wanted to post it anyway.
