Thanks LOLA for a great workshop. I spent the morning painting, demonstrating elements of nature, sky, water moving and still, rocks, handling trees, and different ways of creating textures.
Then the afternoon I conducted a paint-along involving some of the morning's demonstrations. Sharing techniques that allow my students to have a deeper understanding of the medium. I concentrate on composition, controlling wet-on-wet washes, drybrush, spattering, and lifting of the medium with one-on-one instruction.
The paint-along took 2.5 hours: I painted for an hour and my students accomplished their paintings in 1 and a half hours As you can see in the group photo I was quite pleased with all of the students paintings.
