Joseph Zbukvic painting course day 2

Day 2 and exercise in the morning was a typical Paris scene, looking into the light.  This was an exercise is tone, light and composition, with I suppose the most difficult being the pedestrian crossing and perspective.

Here is my rendition:

In the afternoon we moved outside for a spot of plein air painting.  And literally just outside the hotel in Cadeques (Llane Petit) is this great little bay with picture postcard boats high up on the shingle beach:

As always, Joseph spent a lot of time with the students and offering guidance and help along the way, as wel as a critique the end of the painting.  Joseph's comments on this one - foreground too small (or horizon not high enough), shadow on road too warm and too much detail in the foreground.
