 I first met Sherry at a paint out via UWS.  We were up at Park City painting the Ruth Christopher's Barn/converted home and while I was struggling with perspectives, she was happily admiring the cows behind us.  The colors she had thrown into her landscape had me in awe.  I asked her how she achieved such a beautiful sky and lush greens.  Sherry didn't hesitate....Antwerp Blue!  It became my favorite from that day on.  Sherry is an amazing artist and holds nothing back.  I hope you will enjoy this fun opportunity!
