ocean city class

Though the class is ongoing, today, Monday, was the first day I was able to get back to Marie's class in Ocean City since late spring. Today we were working on simple still life setups to practice paint handling and mixing. Watching Marie demonstrate, I realized how much I'd forgotten over the summer, and how I'd fallen back on old (bad) habits, like using too much water and forgetting to stroke upward and allow the paint to mix and settle downward ... Just following her lead after the demonstration, I was pleased with the luminosity of the colors in this small study. More pigment, less water; more pigment, less water ...

Tomorrow it's back to Berwyn and large still lifes. Posted by Picasa
