On the final day of the workshop with Alvaro Castagnet the group went to Coxsackie (which you get to by driving past Surprize and Climax — I kid you not!). The town has a nice little riverside park and some interesting old buildings.

The day was beautiful – the sun was shining and there was a light breeze.

When I arrived, delivering lunches, everyone was spread out all over the town.

This made Alvaro spend his time walking from one person to the next. (Good way to work off the afternoon cookies!)

There were lots of great shady places to stand while painting, while still taking advantage of the sunny lighting.

Although some preferred the sun!

The artists were the only ones enjoying the day. Nothing like a nice stroll through town and doing a little window shopping!
