Art Geography 1A

Here we are at my Studio L painting side by side as I teach Rita (a talented high school senior) a few lessons on how to paint a portrait from a reference photo. We have several geological-like strata of art over which we toiled. The first layer is a triptych that is a commission I am currently working on (see one of my previous posts). Propped on top of a blank canvas on top of the commission piece is an initial drawing of a barn by a pond (see one of my previous posts), and propped on top of that is the finished painting. "Barn by Pond" (nice title, huh?) is a current acrylic workshop that I am conducting at a local art materials store. Also take careful note that Rita uses her jeans to clean her brushes whilst I use a rag. Both methods are acceptable within the painting establishment. If you wish to call me to say hello, please note my phone number on the grey supply locker (click on the photo to enlarge). The Studio L phone bank is waiting for your call.

Mr. L you are a hoot! I have never seen such a use of a painting. I know some artist who would cringe at place so much stuff on a finished piece for fear of damaging the paint skin. I know it something I would too.

What? Me worry? I'm working over tough acrylics, Davida.

It looks like she is doing well. You might want to teach her to use a palette instead of her pant leg.

Onpainting, she's still in training.
