Workshop in Petaluma
I had a great time last month with fellow artist Barb Szkutnik at Camille Przewodek's workshop in Petaluma, California. On day one we painted the effect of light falling on colored blocks and colored cloths. On day two we added a round object to the block study. Days three and four found us painting on location using the techniques we learned at the beginning of the week. On the last day we had a live model and painted "mudheads". Camille kept us hopping as she stressed getting the paint on quickly and painting the shapes while indicating light and shadow. Keep in mind that these rough-looking pictures are "starts" and not finished paintings. It was time well spent. And evenings were fun as Barb and I sampled the fare from several fabulous restaurants.
