I've spent the past weeks finishing up the new work for a dual show in December with Ken Auster - and I've put my paints away for a short while to simply enjoy the holiday week. Before I get busy in the kitchen, I wanted to post the paintings I did at the recent workshop - a demo and sometimes two every day - which I try to include a variety of subjects.
Starting with Monday's demo, which I share the original reference photo and the students paint their versions the following day .....
10 x 8"
8 x 8"
Wednesday morning's demo...
6 x 6"
Wednesday afternoon's demo, starring our dog Joey...
7 x 5"
Thursday's demo, from a police mugshot...
4 x 4"
and Friday's demo.
8 x 8"
My next workshop is in New York City, held at the National Academy on 5th Avenue - an amazing place to paint, a goldmine of imagery to capture. The date is next May, the Tuesday after Memorial Day - and Sedona Arts Center is who you want to contact if you're interested in signing up. The details are on the right-side column of this blog.
Another reminder that Brett has brand-new Tabletop Easels available as well as brand-new AlterEasels --- now there's a perfect gift for an artist if someone needs a hint.
And I'll be back to painting next weekend, meanwhile ~
wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving
