Oh, long, fruitful first day! What a day. What a rainy, fun day. First we made it out to the gorgeous botanical gardens out by the Schloß (castle) Nymphenburg. We stayed indoors, as you see, and had our first lesson and it was a lovely experience with a Munich painter Natalja R. More or less everyone there was painting or sketching--we were not alone! Natalja brought all of the supplies and gave pointers in a helpful, encouraging way. From there we stopped for a bite (and I almost forgot to pay), then bought our annual passes for Lenbachhaus, then went to a local art store and bought some supplies for journaling, painting, and sketching. Next, Hans-Peter S. (of some renown to everyone who has done a trip to Munich with me) took the group on a tour while I ran around trying to pick up all the theater tix. Our day ended at our first show--a tough one to follow, for sure, but beautiful nonetheless! Maybe a sample of pictures will give you an idea of what our day was like.
