urban painting with acrylics

I saw an article this week in the Detroit Free Press about Donald Anderson -- a free lance painter and teacher who sets up shop by the Detroit River in downtown Detroit. So, I went down today and had a FANTASTIC lesson on acrylics wtih him en plain air! Donald was a wonderful teacher and I am so pleased with my very first acrylic painting! Can't wait to go back next Saturday to learn more! The African Festival was going on in the background with wonderful drumming, dancing, foods -- it was an afternoon of color, rhythym, water and wonderful folks. Donald's friend posed for the picture!
