Beautiful September Workshop, Day Two

Our second day we painted along the shore of Pear Point facing east on San Juan Island. I demonstrated one of my favorite plein air techniques of using black gesso and a colored transparent glaze as an under-painting, a great way to build up layered information quickly. Some people experimented with color palettes, others took the plunge and tried oil paints for the first time. Experienced painters took time to develop their compositions and try new ideas, tools or techniques.

I always enjoy seeing your paintings... it would be cool to sprinkle photos of your paintings around on our network of sites. Perhaps I'll be in touch about that this winter.
