FCA Figure Painting Workshop

Painting and explaining - a right brain/left brain workout!

I taught a figure painting workshop for the local chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists yesterday.  It went well and was very invigorating for me.  The workshop participants were all accomplished artists who knew their way around a brush and were passionate about painting.

While I have no painting to show for the workshop (I gave the best demo piece to our excellent and long-suffering model, Susen who probably needed chiropractic work after the long, reclining pose), you can see some great  results in Alice Saltiel's blog.  Alice's education included enviable amounts of life drawing and the work that she produced yesterday sure shows it.  Enjoy!
