Workshop with Melinda Cootsona

Earlier this year, I took a workshop with Melinda Cootsona, "Using Photos, to Paint the Figure". This was a wonderful WS that got me started painting  figures, and painting larger.  This painting, and the figure painting, from one of my recent posts, both came from this class. Both area 20 X 20. I have several more figurative works in progress. Stay tuned!

Work Shop with Jenny Nelson


Now for completely different, something that I have never done. A few weeks ago, I took a workshop from, abstract painter, Jenny Nelson. Jenny is very talented, and a wonderful instructor. I had lots of fun, and worked on several drawing, and painting exercises that opened a whole new world for me!  Here is some of what I did during the WS, and a cute photo of Jenny with her equally cute, and tall husband!
