UPDATE: Going to move the Plein Air Workshop to next Sunday, May 6th. Rain looks highly probable tomorrow. I think there are 5 spots available, looking forward to this!
Short notice, I know! But just got clarification that it's open to everyone. I'll be teaching a “Beginner's Intro to Plein Air Workshop" this Sunday, April 29th at Red Wing Park presented by the Artists Gallery in Virginia Beach! It's $75 and you can still sign up as there are 6 spots left. This should be an awesome workshop for those that are looking to start painting outdoors. Contact the Artists Gallery at (757) 425-6671 http://www.theartistsgallery.org/ for reservations. You can download my workshop supply list here: http://liquidmethod.squarespace.com/storage/PleinAirWorkshop.pdf . There is a possibility for rain that day, so the make up date for that will be May 6th.
My submission CHEATIN' HEART for the "I Like Soup" group exhibition May 25th - August19th, 2012 at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art
Was really happy yesterday about my speed progress. I almost completed this in 2 hours. The 95% of this was done. I finished the power lines, moon and bridge holes afterwards. My goal is to get my speed up consistently so that when I compete in plein air paint outs, I'm not totally freaking out.
"Cheatin' Heart" Oil on Board 16x12" pulp fiction art for upcoming group show!, originally uploaded by Liquidmethod.
Had to go back and do another pulp art piece for a group show that's coming up. I had a lot of fun on this one! Enough fun to stay up till 4am to finish. All the plein air work I've been doing lately has definitely helped me and allowed me to be a little more looser. While this isn't as loose as I would have hoped, I feel it's a good progression towards that. Annie was my model for this one, as was my last pulp painting. I decided not to try to get an exact likeness and go for the feel. It really helped me to not overwork the face with detail. I showed an early process work to her and she approved, whew! Thanks to my friend Walt who was gracious enough to loan me use of his kitchen and to procure his Jack Daniels as a prop.
