Day two of my workshop with Brian Blood, found me anxious to get out and try my brush using Brian's information. I happened upon Point Lobos years ago when I was on vacation so I knew we were painting at another gorgeous spot.
Brian started right in on a demo using all the rich colors that he is known for. The back lit hills and blue water were the first shapes he blocked into the canvas. It was fascinating to watch as the painting took shape and depth.
Next we tried our hand at painting the cove. It was another challenging start for me with my colors. After lunch, Brian gave each artist advise about how to improve their painting and lots of encouragement. He advised me to eliminate red from my palette because I was getting everything too purple. I was pleased with the finished painting of the cove and and even had time that day to start a second painting of an arch I had seen farther down the path. Topics: Brian Blood Workshop
