#127 Dreama Tolle Perry Workshop Day 2

#127 French Balcony Garden
12" by 12" original oil on canvas with sides painted

Another wonderful workshop day here in Cary.  Today's painting presented us with a bit more challenge
painting one of Dreama's signature style Italian scenes.  The first stage of our painting session we begin by using  only transparent colors with some gorgeous colors such as Carribbean Blue and Indian Yellow.  They set the stage for the more opaque colors that are added next and peak through as well as mixing to create wonderful unexpected passages as one color transitions to another.  Tomorrow we will be playing musical easels in the morning before jumping into our own subject matter to round out the third and final day of the workshop.  Our workshop organizer, Lynda Chambers, delighted us again with her wonderful gourmet meal! At the end of the day, it is so much fun to walk around and see what everyone has painted and how different each of our painting styles are even though we all painted using the same subject.  I am very excited to bring home all the inspiration and enthusiasm from this experience and apply it to my daily paintings.  Hope your week is going well!
