We were asked to submit images to her for both workshops. She sent back the ones she thought would be good candidates with a value black and white image of each. I missed the first day from the chemcial reaction to the alcohol from the previous two days, so worked on only one painting--the shutters on the building in Avignon, France. It turned out to be one of the most difficult to do with all the shutters being taped prior to painting each value. I but I did persevere. I'm just about finished and should be posting it soon. I learned a lot of different ways to paint on Yupo and look forward to a lot of exploration on this painting surface.
Just a reminder -- whenever you are painting in a workshop do not expect to produce your best work. It will take me some time to see if this "batik" technique is what I want to apply to my art.
Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see. What else would you like to see here?.
