Workshop with Raelene Sharp

Today I attended a workshop with Raelene Sharp. Amazing painter. These gum trees were from a photo image from Raelene. She demonstrated as we worked through the picture. You learn so much from other artists watching them work and from their instruction . I found this piece very frustrating initially as a; I am not used to doing landscapes and b, I am not used to working in her method. At one point I was nearly ready to throw the picture in the bin but I'm glad I didn't because I learnt a lot and I am happy with the painting.

I think you should join 'the dark side' and become a landscape pastelist. This is great! Nice perspective.

It turned out great Kay. Its interesting to paint in her style isn't it. I would do another of her workshops in a trice. But portraiture this time.

Your painting came out nice. I'm sure it is hard to work in someone elses style.

Hi there! I noticed your blog is very nice and interesting to me, so I thought I would leave you a comment to let you know that I liked it.

I also would like to invite you to visit me here in San Diego. There you will find my labels, and meditations, and music videos, but mostly my art in different perspectives...

hope to see you soon thank you
