Two other Workshop Demo Oil Paintings...

Here are two other demos...one done prior to the workshop
to show how a warm undertone works to bring cohesive unity
to all picture plane, and causes color vibration. The second
was painting Saturday night along with a couple workshop
students willing to paint later into the day...

both images are clickable...to see larger

thanks Beast...

won't be perhaps until next summer now...at least the one in Marquette...and usually closer to beginning of August, though I might do a week long up there as well. Look on my blog for information for next year...and I'll add your contact to my list to inform for next year. Appreciate your inquiry...take care!

Lovely work, Larry! Hope you can resolve your internet connect problems soon! How nice to be living in a rural setting, though!

Thanks Michelle...

and thanks Helen..

kinda difficult right now, getting online when I can, but ordered connection today. Anytime within the next two weeks...(as service in the northwoods usually comes by one person swamped with a good work load)...

take care...appreciate the comments

these are so awesome! I have yet to work up the courage to paint outdoors (sketching, yes, painting, not yet), but you're a strong argument for it. it's funny, but my favorite part on both of them is how you dealt with the tops of the trees against the sky, it just feels so lively and vibrant there.

thanks Kellie..

I painted in studio for 17 years before deciding to take my paints outdoors. Its been about 14 years now that I've painted on location outdoors.

Nature being painted is experienced, observed, and interpreted while it exists in a constant state of transition. Hard edges, fixed shapes may represent what a photo looks like, but not what nature in transition looks and feels like.

Undertones, brushwork, various colors are used to loosely capture and simulate this effect. How negative space is utilized to suggest sky holes as well...

I'm pleased to hear these devices I call upon seem to be working for you!!! Thanks so much...
