Feb 2 - Going to Finish a Demonstration Painting

This is a 16 x 20 oil painting I started a year ago--in August--as a demonstration piece for the wonderful folks up in Sebastopol. I was demonstrating morning light, and painted it to this point in about 45 minutes, talking all the time!

Knowing the Color System allows an experienced artist to make good color choices quickly. However I'm sure you'll agree that this painting is far from finished! Now it's time to pull it through to that finished state by working with the larger shapes to make them more interesting.

On other news, I'm preparing for the first of two workshops here at my studio-- "Color Boot Camps" over the Valentine's Day weekend. Both this one and the new one in April are already full. I may open up another one in June, if there are enough interested students.

And just for fun, look how much Shadow has grown! He's three months now, and this was taken in the studio last night...(those floor tiles are 13" square)
