Yesterday's art workshop with Kaye Franklin went well and was lots of fun. My friend Glenna went with me. She normally does watercolor and is great at zentangle, but now and then she dabbles in oil. There were only six of us in the class - most of the ladies were regular students of Kaye's. The lesson was done in oils, and all the other students were doing oil. Since Kaye often does pastels and that is what I like, I did pastels. Here is Kaye's demo painting, which she did in the morning. Then we all spent the afternoon trying and learning to do the same painting. Here is my attempt.
Because I was using pastels and I am the Fastest Painter in the West, I did a second painting. This was done from a photo of redbud trees near my house. Toby did not like my pine trees - said the painting "did not look like me." He liked my Okie painting better. Both could use a bit more work. Jo, any comments would be appreciated.
