I have been in Atlanta all week teaching a workshop. There is something about the South and the artists down here that makes me want to come back again and again! I was so blessed with 14 wonderful artists in my workshop and we had an incredible time. Their paintings are amazing and our favorite slogans easily became "slap it on" and "painting shapes".  I am afraid we will all hear these sayings in our sleep for quite some time ...

On the first day we started with a value study which is great practice and a wonderful opportunity to practice palette knife painting. It is a lot about "icing the cake" and understanding texture and pressure with the knife. After we completed the studies we painted 6" x 6" small paintings ans had some fun with color. The completed paintings were simply amazing!

Tomorrow I will post our first 12" x 12" painting of sunflowers. We also managed to paint boats (I know ... shocking!) and had fun with the reflections in the water and on the shore. I know I will be back in Atlanta soon!
