Skip Lawrence Workshop

Spent this past week at a painting workshop with Skip Lawrence. We were to choose a theme to work with and I took a photo I had of Cooper sitting by a plant in the window. I must have done 50 very different paintings of this image, most of which are under this final painting.

Lawrence had me go from simple, flat shapes with opaque color to value studies to losing edges and contrast, with many other exercises in between.

It really was a great experience.
