There's a wonderful group of people here. Many are pros. Some are beginners. The teachers are awesome. I am very tired. Will post more.

I'm here in Amherst, attending IMC for the third year running. The first day, Saturday, was spent having our sketches critiqued, analyzed, and run through the ringer. They are actually pretty nice about it and you have to be open to their opinions and expertise. Sunday, we worked hard to complete the sketch and then proceed to mount it on to the surface of your choice and begin painting. Many people started painting today. A few even started yesterday. I, of course, am behind the pack. I was able to scan it in and piece it together today. I'm now ready to walk to the printer in town and have them print it out on some 80 lb. watercolor paper. I'll then mount it on to a 16"x20" piece of masonite. This way, the sketch is preserved.
