Tea for the Holidays
6x8in oil on canvas panel $125. SOLD
I love my red teapot, and for this holiday season
it seems appropriate to paint it with the
pine cones and berries.
I didn't manage to finish this demo until the workshop
was over, but they did get to see the main steps involved.
It was an exciting workshop with accomplished artists.
I think the main change I saw in their work from before
to after - was a stronger use of color and not over-stroking
the paint. That came about as they learned the different
ways to use the knife and brush.
Over-stroking the paint can lead to
a frown from Julie!
As well as regular canvas I also provided sheets of the
Fredrick black primed canvas sheets to try.
They really seemed to enjoy working on that particular surface.
The landscapes were worked out first with value thumbnails
They did fracture more than you can tell, but
"tidied up" to their own personal interpretation. It was the
second fracturing workshop for three of them.
Here are some of their workshop paintings. Unfortunately
some of the photos I took had showed too much glare and
I apologize to the artists for missing some out.
