We were inspired. We made quick studies of whatever caught our attention at first and then settled in for longer poses and deeper explorations. We worked in the cool morning and warm afternoon paying attention to the qualities of light, intensity and contrast throughout the day. Morning and afternoon light appear warmer than noon light although morning does have a cooler, perhaps bluer, sensation due to moisture in the air. In the end it all depends on the artist to show us how they “see it”
Thumbnails from the sketchbook-they may not look like much but there is nothing like a quick thumbnail sketch to point you in the right direction…

Notice the mysterious device in Betina’s hand…the super viewer.
