These images are from an abstract painting workshop I taught last weekend in Palo Alto. This workshop focused on creating multi-dimensional paintings using the concept of layering. The first image is an example of a class exercise that focused on the importance of value in painting. The second image displays a variety of classroom exercises that were painted during the weekend. There are some examples of when students added one color to a monochromatic palette and other examples focused on learning the color wheel by painting with an analogous color palette and the split complimentary color. My next round of classes and workshops begin in October. My time away from the classroom will consist of working on my portfolio, working on my website as well as attending multiple Bay Area figure drawing workshops.
