Day 2 on San Juan Island

The second day of the our workshop was quite remarkable, perfect weather, no wind, and 360 degrees of beauty. Everyone was inspired, and much more comfortable with painting and using the materials. We introduced a new technique, a non traditional approach,starting with a black gesso underpainting, followed by a transparent glaze to tone the canvas. All this before starting in with the regular opaque oil paint.This technique worked very successfully for everyone.
