Oil Class Exercise

Did an exercise with my class today.  Take the same image and reproduce it several times...once true to "what you see" and then change the color and design. They found it difficult but forces you to deal with the painting on its own and not as a copy of a scene.

 Just got back from teaching a pastel and oil workshop in Croatia.  It was amazing!  I was instructing with and Lynda who organizes these workshops does an amazing job!  She is charming and incredibly well organized and the food, accomodations and places we painted were all fabulous.

Headed home with a nightime stopover in Dublin.  Great town but we were scheduled to fly out on Monday when the hurricane was coming...worst storm there in over 60 years!  But, we got out and made it home!
