Today was the second day of my three day workshop in Morehead City. yesterday i did a demo of a marsh scene with a backlit house in it. i showed the ladies how to underpaint using the Cape Cod School technique of underpainting all the shapes with 'straight out of the tube' colors on the first round of painting and add the necessary colors to those shapes to get it closer to the real thing.
Today we painted Hensche/Hawthorne blocks using palette knives and then set up a cosmetic bottle and painted it in the same manner. these excercises train the eye how to see past local color and to see bright vivid, luscious color and scoop it on like cake frosting. how fun is that?
tomorrow we cover internet sales, blogs, and marketing in a morning coffee session, and then more painting and a wrap up with a critique session.
I have a slot left in the weekend class if youre interested in signing up. just email me and i'll save you a spot.
