On the last workshop day, we had a demonstration of a quick study, and then we got to try it! This time, no glass for me! A great exercise for getting the "big" picture and a way to practice being loose and not overworking a painting. I took a photo, so I am going to paint another one in more than 10 minutes..we can compare. I really like these 2 vessels....plus, I am planning to make it SQUARE!!!! Imagine that!
The last glass painting of my workshop...This time, clear glass! This painting started out on a 10" x 8" panel...We decided that there was too much empty space on the right of the subject, so this one I did cut to 8" square...I think it works better, plus, I LOVE the square format!
This is the first painting that I started in my workshop with Elizabeth Robbins in Salt Lake City. It was my intention to learn how to paint glass...I spent about half the day wiping off the rose that was being held by the glass.....I brought it home "undone" and tried again, but wiped again....So, here is my glass waiting for something to hold....another student suggested that I cut the canvas to a square..(effectively omitting the rose)..That could work..but eventually, I will get a rose that works. Then I will repost!
The minute I saw this challenge, I had to check it out to see if the girl was a friend of mine who lives in NYC.....This is one of my first "people in location" paintings....It was fun to try! As usual I had many questions to answer before I got started and a few still remain..but this week, I am off to study with my friend and teacher, Elizabeth Robbins....she can help me answer the tough ones! See you next week!
