Foliage in the frontPosted: August 5, 2012
Now that our Portland workshop is almost over I can say that Marc and I really gave the participants some challenging situations to deal with (windy corners, record-breaking heat, complex buildings, locations with no bathrooms!) and they rose to the challenge. Some amazing sketches were produced in these three days and I hope they will be posted on Flickr for all to see.
Today the whole group painted together on the South Park blocks and it was a day for both of us to circulate and help people with individual questions/problems they had. My first demonstration was dealing with lacy foliage in front of a dark building. I painted the large shape of the light green trees first and then added the dark walkway behind it.
