First Class too the Life Boats

This is a demo piece from the painting class I have been teaching at Boothbay Regional Art Foundation. One of the lessons when we are doing Black and white work is if you are gonna break up a value mass..make sure it's worth it. In other words if you are painter that says "I like details" make sure those details are worth breaking up the big statement your piece makes from a distance. I'm big on simplifying at the moment so that's my angle. Let me know if you like seeing stuff from my class or if you are interested in attending some classes.

The spring sale has ended early due to the overwhelmingly positive response. I think that is what shut down blogger for a couple days.... Yes I'm kidding.

Very interested in these sort of pieces they are helpful in clarifying thoughts about value and give an insight into your way of looking at the world. One of these days I'll get to Maine, hopefully getting to attend a class or two.

Great to hear Mick. Out of the hundred people or so that have signed up to follow this blog, I would love to hear from more people on posts like this or just feedback in general. Thank you for consistently chiming in Mick. I will post another on the class soon.
