Austria's State Holiday fell on a Monday this year, the perfect opportunity for a long weekend and a watercolor class with Albert Hoffmann in Gamlitz, southern Styria, right at the border to Slovenia. A cold, wet, foggy weekend, which still gave a lot of time for painting in the winegardens of Styria.We spent the first morning near our quarters in case of rain coming and started out with painting an old farmbuilding.

The second try of painting the view from the garden of a very rustic "Buschenschank" owned by a mother and her daughters, the three "Winzerk├Âniginnen" - young beautifull girls, knowledgable about wine, elected to represent wine made in their area for a year.

Landscapes, hills - oh my!

A LOT of help from Albert!

Basically Albert overpainted the whole picture. Do I have a problem with hills!
