Back from Toronto!

Well, just got back from the Fan Expo in Toronto Canada, and I'm just about to take off for another small trip . . . I'm looking forward to just getting back into the studio. The Fan Expo was fun, but the best part in my opinion was hanging out with friends. It was also my first time to Canada, so that was fun, I was schooled in the ways of the "Lunies and the Toonies" . . . and I don't mean the classics from WB Studios.

One morning I was able to get out early before the convention started with Canadian Marco Bucci We walked around Toronto looking for something interesting to paint . . . and came across this old building. It was a fun time painting. Marco gets out a lot more than me to plein air paint, so it was fun painting with him and checking out his approach. More than that, we only had one set up, so we shared the same easel, putting up two separate panels, painting shoulder to shoulder . . . so there we were, side by side, mixing our paint on the same palette. We had a real great time talking and painting together, but it must have looked funny for people walking by?

The above oil sketch is my take on the building, check out Marco's blog to see his.

Jason.. I like the softned edges on the bulding and the grayed colors. Reminds me of some of the great American painters of he WPA era. You've shown that good work can be achieved in almost any circumstance.
