Scottsdale, here I come!

I'm headed to Scottsdale tomorrow! I've never been there so I'm pretty excited. I'll be taking a work shop with Camille Przewodek.  I've wanted to do this for a long time. It should be a lot of fun - a whole week's worth. I can't wait to post some photos when I get back. 

Footprints in the Snow

Her approach is a colorist approach and the goal will be to learn to paint the "light effect" on objects. It's a different way of seeing and painting than I'm used to although I'm pretty sure it's what I've wanted to do all along. Since signing up and watching her DVD, I've tried it, or at least tried to be aware of it a little more. I'm not expecting to paint any masterpieces down there, but am hoping to come back with a grasp on the concept.

Calf in Zorn, 6x8, oil on panel

I repainted this little guy using the Zorn palette (Titanium White, Yellow Ochre, Ivory Black and Cad Red Light) just to see how it would be different. Personally, I like it better in these colors than the fuller palette.

Winter Walk 2, 6x6, oil on panel

This painting and the previous are the same scene done in two different palettes. Also, the scene is treated differently in the composition, but that was not intentional. It's interesting to see how subtle shifts can change the feel and look of a painting. All fun in learning new things!
