Let me Give you a Ring

I've been working on finishing a larger painting, that is taking a lot longer than I expected. I decided to take a short break to paint this little phone portrait! It is so much fun to start and finish something, all at once! I love the feeling of accomplishment!

More from Tim Horn's Work Shop

These two paintings were done in Tim's workshop. The bottom painting shows an exercise that was done from a photo showing dark and light value patterns. The top painting was done from my own photo, again, emphasizing dark and light value patterns. The ideas covered in the class are explained in the Kevin MacPherson's book, " Fill Your Paintings with Light and Color". Covering these concepts in Tim's discussions, along with his great demos, and individual help, really made a huge difference!
