I had done this image small and wanted to see if I could keep the same sense of freedom and brushstrokes working larger.

A Vermont Day

A demo from my painting class. In keeping with painting shapes and not always trying to analyze what they are but just observing.

Demo...all painting is abstraction

This is a demonstration in my Pastel class at the Community College of Vermont. All painting is really abstract painting because it is all about shapes. With that in mind, I showed them how to create a copper teapot by making sure the exterior shape was a teapot, but within that, just to paint shapes and colors without thinking copper.
