Woman in the Desert

What an awesome time with wonderful people in Palm Desert CA, with wonderful people, in an area that has so much to offer.

The workshop helped painters to develop a process from taking pictures of a figure in a landscape setting, selecting a photo for painting, not all photos make good paintings to design, color sketch preliminaries and the then the final figurative painting.

The students quickly gained confidence, brush/painting knife control, color mixing, seeing what  to be aware of in a painting and as one said, reinforcing the basics while making the advanced easy, thanks Joe.

I felt we all grew close in this short time together. Like a much-needed retreat, doing what we enjoy, painting.

The Woman in the Garden workshop was hosted by Deb Mumm at Venus Studios in Palm Desert, CA.

Enjoy the pictures and paintings.

Upcoming workshops in California

I have been asked to plan a workshop before Thanksgiving 2012 on Intro to Self Portrait. Please contact me early if you would like to attend, I have commitments for half a class already. I like to keep the classes small so everyone gets good attention and understanding of information. This is a good first step towards figurative and portrait painting.

Hope to see you next year on my return to California for a Workshop titled Woman in the Desert – Canyon. I will expand on this figurative/landscape workshop to also include paining rocks with a painting knife.
