I"ve been practicing the technique I was taught in the Workshop with Marjorie Hicks the first of the month. Instead of painting over the value painting I did during the workshop, I did another one. Then I added color on top of the new value study. The photos below are a result of the workshop. The man on the beach, I have warmed up the shadow. It looks better now, I having taken a photo of it yet. I really have enjoyed the gesture paintings. Thanks to Marjorie Hicks and the Chestnut Group for this wonderful one day workshop.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
