I'm two days into a three day sojourn into heaven. Omigosh. Imagine: learning from two of your heroes for three whole days. I'm learning so much. Carol Marine and Karin Jurick are amazing and so positive and organized with great exercises to illustrate the points they want to get across. I can't believe I haven't taken photos of the first two paintings from yesterday, so I'll have to wait to post them. Today I did four (!!!) and will add three here- two 6"x8" monochromatic value studies and a 6"x6" painting of one of the other artists (Jeannette) on a black-toned gessobord. Tomorrow we have another demo and another painting and then will learn some of the business information helpful in selling paintings on eBay and in keeping a better blog. So, you may be seeing some changes in this one soon.
