Johnstown PA workshop

                                                              "Cambria City Churches"
                                                                  10"x8" Oil on board
I attended a Ron Donoughe plein air workshop in April, at Artworks in Johnstown, PA.  This little panel was what I started in the workshop.  It is  finally finished.  The workshop was very informative and I really liked his "parent color" method for getting started with the painting.
This is how I already work in watercolors.  Begin with 3 or four 'starter' color mixes.  These get tweaked to create the multitude of other shades, tints, values for the painting.
Thank you Ron for the epiphany!

He will be teaching another plein air workshop this August in Wellsboro, PA at the Red Barn Arts Center.   Ron is an excellent teacher.
