"Cerulean On Mars"



 "Cerulean On Mars" 8x8 oil on panel... playing with lost edges and texture. A couple things I see that need adjusting but it's almost there...  love painting used paint tubes. They have such fun character - the shapes and colors are infinite. I've done quite a few in pastels but only a few in oils - this is my newest ... spent a while mixing paint, so didn't start painting until about 11:30pm ...and despite my droopy eyes, I kept at it until 2:30am! I was on a roll and didn't want to quit. I've since made a few minor changes ...

INVEST in YOURSELF

PUT YOURSELF FIRST this year! SIGN UP FOR A WORKSHOP
My first of 2016 will be in Portland, Oregon - April 1, 2, 3 at The Roaming Studio, hosted by Leah Kohlenberg. "The Beauty of Imperfection - What If . . ." is the theme and the workshop is sponsored by UArt Pastel Paper - every student receives UArt paper to use.

We begin with learning about underpainting on the UArt and then proceed right into doing thumbnails with ink pens and pastel - focusing on composition and values. We'll use these thumbnail exercises to move into color work and then have fun with some speed painting - a great way to loose up.

Each day we will do exercises, painting, watch demos, have discussions, and paint, paint, paint! You'll be pushed out of your paint box into a new world of exaggeration, bold color tempered by neutral color, experimentation, and visualization.

Learn more by visiting www.uartpastelpaper.com  to see a description, a map of the location of the venue, cost and registration form HERE. Class is filling up so don't delay!

Below are photos from some of my recent workshops . . .
