Workshop Over!

These paintings of peppers were my last painting of the workshop.  
Well, it was a fabulous week.  This was well worth the effort & $$ to get here.  To tell you the truth, I thought this would be sort of an 'easy' workshop, and really just wanted the experience of watching Carol paint!  To my surprise it was a very challenging workshop - no easy ways to do these deceptively simply paintings!  Values, Color, Composition, Edges, Brushstrokes... all had to be 'spot on' to make a successful painting.  Carol was a good teacher... no gliding by with a "that's nice!" - she took every person's painting seriously, for every exercise.  I would highly recommend this workshop for all levels.  She gave invaluable advice on the last day about blogging, marketing, and general business of art.  I found her candid and warm, and incredibly serious about what she does.  You all would have loved it!  The women in the workshop bonded very well, too - please check out my Studio Blog for a little surprise regarding them!

  5. Thanks, guys, these are all oil, Denise! I didn't miss my acrylics till I got home and saw that THIS painting got WET RED PAINT all over it!!!!! Grrrr. And, I bought Carol Marine's painting from Friday - which was on her Friday's post - similar subject because I asked for 'something turquoise', and she liked the peppers I did on the turquoise! I LOVE my Carol Marine painting!!!! They are even better in person, if you can believe it!
