Fabulous workshop with Craig Nelson!

It was an honor to have highly acclaimed artist, author and teacher come to Patris Studio and teach a Quick Studies Workshop this April 2017.  Artists from near and far flocked to our bustling studio for the opportunity to study and learn from this modern master. 

Utilizing live models, still life set ups, and beautiful landscape photos, we painted  and painted and painted.  At the end of the day, we were tired but completely energized! 

Here's a quick studies demo by Craig, showing how he interprets the photo with lively brush work and impasto paint.  Just watching him paint is amazing!  We were all inspired to take on the challenges of the painting process after watching Craig's demo.

A very good workshop indeed.  We are hoping he will find time in his busy schedule to come back to Patris Studio again!
