Sunday!

This is a small oil study from today's workshop class with Ned Mueller. The thing Ned stressed most was simple major shapes. The idea is to establish a good solid design and add details later...at the very end.  Ned is SO GREAT and so were our hosts, Carol and Paul Hansen. There is talk about Ned coming back in November.

To see more photos from the day...go HERE.

Thanks for sharing photos and the rundown on this workshop.

I can see the sense in what Ted says. It seems logical to get the major shapes established and then add detail later.

I'm glad you enjoyed the workshop so much.

Have a good week!
