At The M&J
Today was our last day with Ken Auster...a really worthwhile experience. He drives home several points...focal point, lost and found edges, color in shadow and direct light, and atmospheric influence. I think I have learned a lot. Isn't that what is wonderful about painting...it is life long learning.
This painting of Tracy at the M&J Bar is about 90% done. I painted it in very dark light and now that I see it in adequate light there are areas I want to work on...but I am happy about capturing the focal point, and about loosening up and also painting thicker...all goals I had for this workshop. It will appear on my site after these color/value corrections. It is fun to paint in limited light...but challenging, too.
