A wonderful workshop with Randy Blasquez this weekend at the studio.

Randy discussed how she prepares to paint a large format painting.
Using a small plein air study, notan sketches, and source material, she showed us how to get the big simple color value shapes.

It was a really nice weekend of painting large, meeting some new artist friends, and working through the artistic struggle together.  I would never say painting is easy, but the rewards of hanging in there and figuring it out, in an environment that is mutually supportive and instructional, is well worth the uncomfortableness.  

And of course it's always fun to take a lunch break during the workshop and head up the block to Old Soul for something delicious to eat and drink.
