California Workshop 2009


We had another terrific week-long workshop in perennially sunny Petalum, California! This was my third year teaching at L'Atelier Aux Couleurs, an outdoor painting school started by Camille Przewodek, and run by Camille, Carole Gray-Weihman, and Alfredo Tofanelli. Below are some photos taken during the workshop.

Here I am painting a still life demo for the class - showing the simple statement of the initial "masses", or patterns of light and shade.
