Plein Air Workshop - Demo Painting
"La Capillita", 8" x 10" oil on board, 2008
$720. Framed, Available at Galeria Gardner
This is one of the demo paintings from my five day plein air landscape painting workshop last week. The week went really well. The group was small and everyone put in a lot of effort. I would say that the group as a whole was the best that I have worked with yet. There were no whiners or slackers, and they eagerly tackled each of the exercises that I put out for them.
I will write more about the class and post more photos soon. For now, here is a quick one hour sketch that I did using a neutral toned smooth board. The tone related well to the scene, and I left a lot of it showing through in the finished painting.
Below is the view with my painting almost finished.
