John, Mary and I worked on the drawing while having dinner at the Surf Shack in Canoa Ecuador!

Traveling one hour down the coastal road to Canoa Ecuador, I met my friends John and Mary  who had traveled about the same distance from the other direction.  John and Mary and I were celebrating their anniversary as well as birthdays.   We had planned to squeeze in a few drawing sessions, but they weren’t expecting a painting session!

Following up on last night’s post, I am pleased to present this photo update!

We coaxed participation from others!

This photo update features last-night’s quote: “Learning to draw, before you paint, is like learning to walk before you run.” (Don Getz)  After coffee this morning, John and Mary McDonald and I took a hop and a skip and jumped right into a great painting session!

After most of the black lines were painted, the true fun began!

Like a swan in water, Ms. Mary made those pigments sing!

Harmony!

Little by little, the painting came to life!

Stopping point for the day!

John and Mary focused on color, while I worked on black lines.  They will resume work on the painting after they journey home tomorrow.    I look forward to seeing their finished work, one that will forever remind them of their Timeout in Canoa Ecuador!
