Workshop Day #4

Was too tired and wet to post last night. Yesterday was our final day of this wonderfulworkshop, and we were out on an old bridge painting SHAPES....only shapes. When Mary was finished and packing up, her painting flipped and fell into the water. The river was deep, moving, had no access and impossible banks, it started to rain ....so we watched as this white canvas floated under the bridge and down the river. Alas...detachment....we went to lunch and let all of our learnings sink in. The afternoon was filled with critiques and slides etc.
We have learned so much, have lots of exercises to take home with us, and have some very different understandings of the process. Hurray for painting with Ian again!

And that lesson of shapes is probably the most important and most difficult any of us can learn...

no noodling!!!

Karl Dempwolf says to paint an interesting mosaic of shapes... NOT what you see in front of you.
