Hello there! I recently went to Fish Creek Wisconsin for a four day workshop with Shelby Keefe. Google her if you are not familiar with her work, she is an impressionist and the theme of the workshop was painting from photos. I loved it and plan to make several changes in my work. One thing she does is tone her canvases in bright exciting colors. She spends a long time on her sketch and I am slowing down. Also I really want to think about my brushwork, lay down clean color and leave it alone. Here are the four paintings I did during the workshop. The week after I got home I went on a plein air trip with one of my groups and I got to put some of the things I learned into practice.
