I’m back in the Bu after a week of artful fun on Whidbey Island. The workshop was just what I needed. Truly seeing value and accurately comparing and relating value, tips on composing interesting paintings, extensive color theory, plus noticing and painting reflected light were all a part of my workshop experience. Did you know that Ultramarine Blue leans toward red? Carol Marine’s blog has a photo of all us workshop attendees….
My blog post before this one, showed my first workshop painting and here is the painting I finished on the final day of the workshop. Click here to purchase it in my Etsy shop.
