Day 2 of Figure painting workshop

 We always warm up with the medium the student will use.  I used my brush on newsprint for the quick 1 minute to 2 minute warm ups.  Then 5 minutes to put a little color and then on to 10 to develop the colors.  My students did so well and we had a great model...Michelle..she will be at the Landgrove Inn workshop as well

 The landscape is an 18 x 18 oil.  I had done a smaller version as a demo and wanted to do a larger one.  The musicians are a 9 x 12 oil demo from class.
