You can see what Rose made of her shady spot by clicking here.
While Rose and I were on site, the landowner arrived with a couple of other men to inspect the buildings and talk about plans.
The landowner parked his pickup truck behind me and my easel, and I felt obliged to enquire if our presence was a problem - it didn't seem to be - and to apologise for not having sought his permission for painting there. The response was a request for a sketch.
So, I returned yesterday (Wednesday) to make the sketch...
Post Script: The sketch was well recieved
