Students at Work

My advanced students have been learning my "Layering" technique, AKA Pouring. This is a Palm Tree Study that I did as a demonstration, and they created the same painting with wonderful, and varying results.

The color blends in this technique are just so much fun! The movement in this piece is nice also.

This is the frosting on the cake, to tweak the final piece, and making it a work of art!

This is Dawn, who is removing the masking from her painting of a surfer. Everyone watched the "big reveal" and were excited to see what happened during the painting process.

As usual with these pieces, there are a few areas that need to be warmed or cooled with glazes of color as well as darkening values that were masked too early in the painting process.
