Noah Bradley Art Camp: Week 5: Plein Air Landscapes

Week 5, Plein Air (fancy french for painting outdoors).  I was both psyched for and dreading this week.  I love nature and landscapes despite not being very good at them, however late November in Vermont is a hard time and place to work outdoors for hours, even without the issue of working digitally. 

Thankfully there were several establishments kind enough to let me work from the warm comforts of their tables while enjoying their delicious coffee.  Shout outs to:
The Putney General Store on Kimball Hill Rd. in Putney
Cafe Loco in Westminster by Harlow Farm off rt. 5
and last but definitely not least...
The Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery in downtown Brattleboro, right off the bridge leading to Hinsdale
...this last place isn't a cafe but they were kind enough to let me sit, drink coffee and work off their *amazing* view (the one with the open water and hillsides).

If you're in their neck of the woods, pop into these places, they're wonderful AND have great views!
