A very wonderful workshop with Suchitra Bhosle

Thank you Suchitra Bhosle for coming to the studio and sharing your experiences, approaches, techniques, and so much more with us in this 3 day Figure and Portrait workshop Feb. 23-25, 2018.  It was a fabulous workshop and we look forward to having her return early next year!

Wonderful demos each morning to observe and learn from Suchitra's approach and thought process.

Using black and white photographs to focus in on values and edges.  
Working with each student individually to further everyone's skill level.

Everyone working hard and diving in to the painting process.

I'm grateful and honored to have studied under her Suchitra Bhosle this past weekend. 
A truly wonderful experience.
