I had a two-day workshop this past weekend with Ray Roberts. We painted at Torrey Pines and La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club (near La Jolla Shores). These were two fantastic locations and I learned a lot from the workshop. They both presented some challenges- TP is all about eliminating the excess and La Jolla's foggy morning gave us a chance to work on a quick value study as the fog burned off.

fun stuff Liz. I took a workshop with Ray this last April. Enjoyed learning from him. He makes it look easy.

He does, indeed, Les. After following your workshop experience on WC, I decided I couldn't pass up on the opportunity when Ray came to town. I enjoyed it very much. Thanks for your comments.

I would love to take a workshop from Ray Roberts but can't find a web site for him? How do you find out about his workshops?
