If you follow the Alla Prima Portland blog you're certain to have noticed Za Vue's paintings....they stand out as "routinely" excellent each and every week. Za's professional background includes working with Disney Feature Animation (for movies like Mulan). She now teaches animation at the Art Institute of Portland and paints with us at Studio 30 on Fridays. Today was day one of her much anticipated portrait workshop.
Here's me with Za at my easel. Note how she used a step ladder to reach my painting. She's kind of short and I'm kind of tall. (Za innovates)!
At the end of the day we discussed our collective work and teacher and students alike were really pleased with the results. Go us!
