Teaching, like painting, requires a certain balance I find. The first day of a new semester at The California Art Institute yesterday left me juggling my desire to do a more complete demo for students , pictured here, while at the same time giving each student enough hands-on individual instruction at their own easels.
This led to somewhat of a compromise in the demo, 18 x 24, with only about one hour of total painting time. I do like the balance in the actual demo though of warms and cools. The blue shawl against the orange-ish background worked I think.
The landscape sketch is from my recent trip back east. Ah, how I wish I was sitting there right now with a peach ice-tea.
A SHAWL THING
