Country Watermill

Country Watermill, L. Daniel, 12 x 9

Last week Plein Air Austin painted together at the Anderson Mill about 20 miles outside of town. Originally built in the 1860's to make gunpowder for the Confederacy, it was later turned into a gristmill to grind corn for the local farmers. It's now a museum and historical marker, and a great place to paint!

Laurel, this is the site of Calvin Liang's workshop yesterday. Had hoped to see you in his class, but was pleased to finally meet Julie in person after following her blog, along with yours of course. It's turning out to be a great week for plein air.

Ann - yep, Qiang arranged this site for our group when he was organizing Calvin Liang's workshop - double duty. We were al the lucky benefactors of his hard work! :) Wish I could've been there with you all... am teaching this week and couldn't swing it.
