White Wave Hydrangeas and Larkspur

Oil on Linen Board
White Wave Hydrangeas and Larkspur was my demonstration painting today for day 1 of my workshop at the Jaycee Parks Center for the Arts, shown step by step here on the blog. This three day workshop kicked off with a nice Dallas style heat wave, but that didn't dampen the spirits of my lively bunch of students! I had ladies and gents from all sorts of interesting places, including Illinois, Florida, California, Louisiana and (of course) Texas. I packed up the beloved travel Keurig and a variety of coffee flavors and a bunch of fresh double chocolate cookies so we had plenty of caffeine and chocolate to keep us going all day. Here are some photos from today's big events, and tonight - Italian landscape is calling, so I'll be making flowers bloom on a big ole canvas here in the studio. With the pugs' all lending a helping paw, naturally.... Check out the lovely hydrangeas my students created today - they started with white flowers, what a brave AND talented bunch!
Step one - yummy yellows!
Step two - blue larkspur blooming!
Step three - the opaques take shape!
