Down to the Docks, September Workshop Day 2

Jensen's Shipyard is a great place to paint. Everyone stepped up to the challenge of painting FAUVE today, pushing colors farther than what you normally see. Lea worked in pastel, Maureen used acrylics, and everyone else used oils. I teach a method of painting plein air oils where we start with black gesso, glaze our painting with an under color, then work with opaques to create our paintings. All worked beautifully with this technique. I am especially happy for our 11 year old artists, Sophie and Fiona.
