This painting was done at a workshop in August up in New York. The workshop was at The Grand Central Academy of Art and the teacher was Sarah Lamb. This was the first time I had used Claessens #13 on gatorfoam board. It was a different texture for me and the paint seemed to go on more like watercolor. At the top you can see where I taped off the canvas because the still life looked better 12 x 9. This is the first image I have posted and I haven't quite figured out how to take pictures with my camera so that there is no glare. This is the only picture I took that didn't have a glare and it looks a little sideways. By the way Sarah Lamb is a fantastic artist and wonderful teacher and if you ever get a chance to take a workshop with her do so! It was a fantastic experience.
