Always Responsibly, Original Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald

SOLD
Last week Carol Marine came to my studio and gave a workshop. Today's post was trying to incorporate her lesson on the color wheel.
We had an amazing time! She's an artist who knows her stuff, and knows how to teach it to you as well. She's organized, thoughtful, generous and she gives each student attention. We had kind of new artists as well as seasoned veterans. But everyone was so friendly and nice - I've had such great feedback from them! Here's a shot of what I managed to do during the workshop:


Four paintings of the same subject, 10 minutes each  - on a 6x6 panel, and


Three paintings of the same subject, 24 minutes, 12 minutes, 5 minutes!

And here we are:

  5. Love this one Kelley! I love how you hinted at the type yet it's perfectly clear what it says : ) And your red seal and glass is super.

  6. Oh I am jealous I was not there. I can't wait to learn more. What great exercises Carol has you do in the workshops. Love the time limitations on each piece.
    Thanks for sharing.

  10. Lucky you! I just love the colors you have in the 10 minute paintings of the lemon slices, especially in the lower right corner. Great shadow colors!

  11. Oh oh... Taken to drinking now, huh Jelly Queen? I'm unsure which is worse - booze or donuts?

    Kidding aside, this was a workshop to die for.
    Interesting to see one aspect was time duration, which I suck at and you've mastered Kelley. Wonderful studies.

    Welcome back!

  15. Kelley, love the limes and value exercises...I was able to go to Carol's workshop in MA and am so excited to apply what I learned and post my efforts, but they don't have nearly the clarity of your limes!

  16. Love the range of greens in this(with the "smidge" of red) and the way the colors compliment so well. Great job on that glass!

    You painted all the studies so well, and I know those 10 minute babies are HARD to do!

    I have yet to do my post but I spent yesterday at my studio repeating the lessons that she gave us.
    She rocks!

  19. ooh, la, la! I love your value studies - very dynamic - very good - - - they are beautiful!!!

    I see one of my favorite girls in the very front sitting down - ooooh, how I wish I gotten to go yours AND the one a the PCA! How selfish I am, wanting to take up all that space -

    I like the ground this cupcake is on and how you are treating the edges - also the paper for the cupcake is spot on - nice job (and willpower, I'm impressed all around!)
