More New Ideas from Karin

Karin Jurick's workshop was a great opportunity to try her painting methods, which include painting on a black ground, and using lots and lots of colors. I loved both of those ideas,especially the one about using lots of colors, so much easier than mixing colors, time saving, and lots more fun. This was a fun painting, using colors from the tube, and showing the interior of the beautiful building where we painted.

New Ideas

Yesterday, I pointed out that taking a workshop is a great way to try new ideas. This little portrait was done from a mug shot, as an exercise, in Karen's class. It was lots of fun to paint, and again, something that I would have never tried on my own.

Last Week with Karin

Last week I spent five days in a workshop, taught by Karin Jurick. She is a very inspiring artist,with lots of great ideas. One of the best things about taking a workshop is expanding your horizons. A workshop really forces you to try new things. This subject matter, is something that I would never had considered, but had lots of fun with. More to come.
