Painting Workshop in Wells
I just got back from an amazing four day oil painting workshop in Wells, BC. It was with Susan Madsen, who's work can be found at http://www.susanmadsen.com. Yogi came with, as did Rhean (hot pink mohawk life drawing model from earlier post) to puppy sit during the day while I was in class, and to have an adventure. We took my camper and stayed at the Cariboo Joy Campground. Interesting spot. More about that later. We all had a great time, met lots of wonderful new people, sang around the campfire and roasted marshmallows and weenies. Here are a couple of the paintings that I did. I'm now in love with oil paints. We got back at about 2 in the morning, and I spent my day setting up an oil painting studio in the basement of Greg's building. I can't say enough about how good the workshop was. If you paint and you ever get a chance to go to one of Susan's workshops, do it. It was inspiring, instructive, really well laid out. Thanks Susan!
