Second Day at the Workshop

Frank did a wonderful demonstration this morning. The block in exercise of yesterday was expanded to deeper attention to values. There was a white carriage standing in shade, and he started on a canvas primed with leftover mud from his palette, then drew in the basic shapes and started with the lighest value to key the painting. Frank said to not stare at anything for too long because it will expand, change colour, move forward....
We painted in the afternoon - I am not finished with mine yet....will postone later.
