One of my favourite Christmas presents this year was a gift certificate to a painting workshop. Well, this was the weekend of the workshop and I spent the past 2 days painting. It was put on by a local artist and lovely man, Brian Simons. He has been teaching artist to paint for years and has even taught some of the local artists whose work I admire.
I really wanted to learn different techniques and I was excited to paint in a different style from what I am used to. I enjoyed being a student. It allowed me to go with the flow and just let it happen.
Here is the painting I created.
This was lots of fun. I was out of my comfort zone but I enjoyed trying something different.
There were six others attending the workshop. We all painted very different paintings using the same techniques and they all turned out great.
Paintings by Linda, Mary, Karen, and CJ.
I am looking forward to see how I can use these new techniques and put my own style into it.
It was a great way to end the month. Looking forward to February. Have a great week, everyone!
