Photos from our Workshop, Day One
Damp weather didn't wet our spirits, a great day experiencing weather and capturing it in paint. We talked about materials first, what to paint on and what to paint with. We talked about some ideas for travel. Our main focus was to create space and incorporate those ideas into our paintings. We developed compositions, established an idea, did several versions until the idea was simplified into a good painting composition. Many people created a color poster, establishing a color palette. Before we began, we made a lot of decisions, it helped to free us up.
