This morning I went to another Austin Palette Club meeting to do a little teaching. I set up a few items on a table and talked them through starting a painting.
We reviewed principles such as working dark to light, thin to thick, and seeing big masses and shapes of color to block in the start. Many are watercolorists though and my dark thin start is a totally opposite approach.
I really appreciate the fact that they wanted to host me again. I hope I inspired them to try oils.
Lately I feel like a gypsy. I have a bag packed and am in and out of the car traveling with paints all over. Next stop Denver for the American Impressionist Society show.
