Images from Saturday's Workshop

Last Saturday I taught a workshop at Kremer Pigments titled In Pursuit of Nature: Landscape Painting and the Traditional Palette.  The focus of the workshop was to expose students to the process of oil paint making and using a limited color palette to mix the necessary colors for a landscape painting.  An overview of different oil types and their purpose was discussed along with painting demos on technique.  It was a fun class to teach and I'm looking forward to more in the future.
