A workshop challenge






I had a challenging workshop for four days last week. I think I'm still recovering. I prefer to paint loose and wet, this workshop was just the opposite. I know, I know, why would I do that to myself? I guess I thought it would be good for me to learn something that I wouldn't normally try. It was a portrait workshop. I think I did OK on the projects that we had to paint; it was certainly a steep learning curve for me. I'm posting my attempts if the two portraits that were done by everyone in the workshop. The young girl was done the second day (her face got sort of orange), the old woman the third day of the workshop. The fourth day we painted a picture of our own; I may post that later, we'll see how it turns out.
