1833 Sunday In Raleigh

We wrapped up today's workshop the same way we started - painting a still life from observation. But first we made studies using only five values, then we translated those values to color, next we painted colors from our imagination using the value study as a guide and then we painted a figure. . . I just remembered an exercise I forgot to have the class do, think they'd be up for homework? Everyone in the workshop was open to trying different things and we had a delightful time.

Today was day one of the two day workshop here in Raliegh. We started with five minute (timed) challenges to loosen up and ended the day thinking about simplifying and about just how many marks are needed to define a subject.
Other news: There are still openings for the workshop in Rockport next weekend. Regrettably, they have had issues with their website, paypal and email, if you've had trouble signing up please call them directly at 978-546-6604 .

  1. The upper one (especially glass/water/reflections) is amazing! Brilliant.
    I need to find a subject that lends itself to your Economy Theory... I'm bogged down today because I don't know what to paint... (oh, and the stink-eye pinkeye isn't helping.)
