Summer Fun

Beach Girls, 14 x 14 

Sun Dress, 12  x 9

Yesterday, I taught a one-day workshop on painting studies of children from photographs.  It was just a great day, with 14 participants at Huff Harrington here in Atlanta, which is a fun place to hang out.   After a short demo, we talked a lot about how essential it is to catch the gesture and the proportions of our little subjects.  So, we spent LOTS of time on placement on the canvas with charcoal before commencing with paint, as shown below in a couple of mine:

Take a peek at the nice work done yesterday by the group, who remained upbeat and eager all day long (sorry that I missed a few, including my demo : )

All in all, a great way to spend the day -- painting, learning a bit, and then having a sip of wine at the end, as we patted ourselves on the back for great results!!


  1. A wonderful way to spend the day. You are a dynamo of a teacher and so giving in all the information to help us get where we want to be. Your paintings of children are beautiful and it was fun to learn about studies and painting the shapes and form. Thanks for a fun and inspiring day!

  2. Très jolie publication avec ces magnifiques peintures...
    Gros bisous.
