Montreal workshop day 1Posted: June 5, 2012
It’s a bit of a different post today because it’s day one of the first of my summer workshops. The weather took a turn for the better so we were able to paint outside all day which really helped. It would have been quite a different experience had we been inside a classroom! I have to say it was a really fun group of people who were all up to the challenges I gave them and they turned out some wonderful paintings by the end of the afternoon. Today we worked on finding and keeping lights and darks in the painting and tomorrow we will experimenting with wet on wet. I think they are ready for that. As for me, it was a bit of a challenge to paint in front of a crowd and talk at the same time but you can see my demo below, in progress and at the end of the day.
Here is my demo in progress:
Here is the painting at the end of the day:
And here is a montage of the great work the students did:
