All of the artists' work




An odd boat!?

Back to the ship with our paintings

The ariel tram tour was cancelled because it was broken down. Instead, we went on a painting excursion at a seaside studio. Our patient and encouraging teacher, Simeon Brizan, displayed a sunset/boat picture and we set out to copy it in our own style. First was made a drawing on the canvas and then added the colors (only 4 - white, yellow, red, and black).

He was helpful with suggestions on how to blend to get the effect of the reflecting sunset. The boat was silhouetted against the brilliant sky and filled in with back. Some of us added birds. We signed the work and then took group pictures of the artists with their creations.

Back to the ship for a good afternoon rest and a great dinner at Candles as we SAILED to our next port. The ship was so quiet under sail!
