This will be the first of five entries for these two ladies. Andrea Bucher, who has taken one previous class from me and Jana Petersen who is a first time student have begun a 5 day workshop designed to accelerate the learning process for “wet on wet” oil painting.
Each day begins with a practice canvas on which we will practice some of the more difficult “load and touch” techniques that make the Joy of Painting so easy to do. Today we spent the morning practicing several ways of painting clouds, winter mountains and evergreen trees. After about three hours of practice we broke for lunch and then, in the afternoon, spent just over two hours using those techniques to complete the day one painting. Below are some of the photo’s showing both sessions.
