reflections step 7

I have finally gotten back to this painting. I was painting between but I can't show it until July because it is for a watercolour meet in June and is supposed to be a surprise. :)

Now that things are settled down I am back to painting. Today I worked on the metal lid in the background and the oranges. It is discouraging to see how much more work has to be done on it but even doing a little every day will get results.

Last of the workshops for awhile

I gave a one day workshop in Haileybury today (about 2 1/2 hrs drive from here) on painting realistic eyes. The class did a great job. These are a couple of pics of the class and their results.

I'll be back to painting for myself this week... at last.

Sorry for the lack of updates

I know it has been forever since I've been painting and I really feel like I'm in withdrawal. I've had so many other things to deal with (mostly art related) as well as having to work. I have to teach another workshop on Saturday but I should be able to paint for myself after that.

This past weekend I was in Toronto attending meetings for the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour (CSPWC). I am the new Northern Ontario Director for the CSPWC and I have work to organize for them now as well.

I will get back to regular updates here as soon as I can.
