Back from my workshop
Hi there, I took a workshop this weekend with an artist named Roger Hueck from Cincinnati. He started out with a presentation talking about what makes good art and showing us paintings and ways to improve them. I had heard most of the things he mentioned but it never hurts to hear them again. We spent the rest of that day and all day Sunday painting with him going from person to person offering help as needed. I took the workshop with a dear friend and enjoying spending time with her. This painting I did on Sunday and really took my time, I used my little transparent red window and looked through it constantly to check values. I think values are everything. Anyway I like my result, I have another one I'm still working on . We have quite the mess here today, the hurricane that came from Texas got here and was pushed into us by the one from the Pacific coast. We had 80 mile hr. winds and trees down all over, two of my neighbors cars have trees on them, we were lucky. Hope things are well with all of you.
