Dramatic Color Blending workshop -- Day Two
Despite abnormally high temperatures in our area this past weekend, sixteen intrepid artists worked to complete a dramatic floral painting using "un-poured" color blending techniques. By masking and then dabbing color in loosely with large brushes, we achieved the look of a poured painting without the messiness of splashed paint. Color was subsequently reinforced or modified and details were added in with a variety of brushes.

Finished paintings posted for critique
Seeing all the paintings at the end of the weekend was quite a treat!! Although not everyone was able to stay to the finish on Sunday, we had 13 fabulous completed paintings to share!! (If you'd like to see each of the paintings individually, Guy has posted additional pix on his blog.)
Huge thanks to Guy Magallanes for hosting my workshop. Guy is the most accommodating and upbeat person -- it's always a pleasure to spend time with him and teach at his studio.
