Eric Jacobsen's one day still life workshop at Art on the Boulevard today. Eric did a demonstration and afterwards I tried to emulate his bold shapes and clean color in my own painting. The one day version of Eric's workshops are great because he packs plenty of information into the session and now we have the rest of the weekend to think about what we learned and to try other things (leisurely) based on what we learned today. It's more relaxed than a 2 or 3 day workshop, but there is no skimping on the information. Eric made us think a lot about color relationship today. He is a fantastic teacher and I'm signed up for his next one.
Celeste Jones and she tells me that for years she has heard of me (because of regional art groups and events). Finally we ran into each other in person. Celeste takes part in the live model session every Saturday at Vancouver Marketplace (in the courtyard of Art on the Boulevard). I may throw in some Saturday...it looks like a really good deal!
Slideshow below.....are you having a good weekend..?
