10 x 8 inches, oil on canvas, Zorn palette
I had a great three-day weekend, but I wasn't relaxing! Neither were the five intrepid students in my Zorn Palette Portrait workshop at Oregon Art Supply.
We painted from a different live model every day, doing 30 minute sketches, 1 hour studies, and 3+ hour paintings too. I can't say enough about the effort - and the improvement - these ladies showed. Check them (and their incredible paintings) out!
Below are my demos from the weekend. The center image was a 30-minute sketch, and the ones on either side took about two hours each.
One of my favorite things about teaching is how inspired I feel after a workshop - inspired to paint, inspired to teach more - exhausted and energized at the same time.
The next session of Zorn Palette Portrait will be January 10-12th, 2015. Click the Workshop tab above for more info!
