There, in the field of wild flowers...practically in my backyard.

In this workshop students will be encouraged to regard the elements of what she/he sees as simple geometric shapes to develop their perception and understanding of the visual strength regardless the landscape, still life, or portrait without copying the image seen into a work of art. All practical and theoretical elements of painting any subject will be covered. Students will learn to work with big shapes first, in a powerful design, and then develop a more realistic painting with attention to values, colors, edges, and paint handling. Most of the class time will be spent on loose brushwork, colors, and design so students develop their own voices and allow the uniqueness of their artistic self to emerge. Individual instruction is tailored to the needs of each student.
Bring what you normally use. It is not important to buy for this workshop.
Some of my favorites:
Mars Orange Yellow Gray (Holbein only)
Kings Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Deep Purple
Brown, Green Umber, Mars Yellow (Old Holland only)
Mars Violet (Bloxx only)
Mars Yellow Rose or Alizarin
Ivory Black off-white (or any light color as a white substitute)
“I paint what I want to see, tell the story I want to tell, convey the experiences with people and places I want to share.”

Malcolm Gladwell said to be good at something one must put in the minimum of 10.000 hours of work.
Reminded me of this by Steve Roberts author/speaker on previous engagement.
Life got in the way, I had a late start today.
I just don't want to miss a day of not painting something big or small.
I surely don't want to miss the count!
Although, I have painted roughly 3.000 paintings in the last 10 years. Sold most on eBay.

I love red cars.
This is my first painting of cars.
When DAILY PAINTERS group retired, I retired too.
I've taken sometimes off looking for myself.
Realized I can't not stop the river from flowing hence I could not step into the same river twice!
It is what it is! today I like this, tomorrow I like that. Nothing is the same. Changes are inevitable.
I shall embrace what may come and GO WITH THE FLOW!
