I went to Eric Jacobsen's one-day still life workshop at Art on the Boulevard today. Eric had some of that new Arches paper (for painting) that everyone seems to be talking about. He gave me a sheet to try. I discovered that I like it. It seems like a nice surface for painting little studies. I'll buy some!
I did a 2nd painting on a panel, but that one tanked. It was a great workshop for me, nevertheless...lots of deep thought-provoking discussion together with some light-hearted banter. (Painting and learning alongside friends is the best!) Slideshow below:
