Technique and Possibilities


I have been busy working on a painting for the workshop that Carlynne mentioned we are teaching this weekend. We really like the new Interactive Acrylic paint. It has a longer open time than the regular acrylics and allows easier blending. It is not quite like oil, but not your mothers acrylic either.

You might be wondering how we teach a workshop together. We take turns demonstrating different techniques and then both of us help students accomplish what we have shown them. Sometimes we both work on one project and sometimes we do two different ones. Our goal in a workshop is to give our students as much information as possible to allow them to go home and do even more with what they have learned. Our workshops are not about the particular painting that we are working on. We are teaching technique and possibilities.
