Workshop News

 We had a lot of fun at the workshop here in Richmond Hill Ontario today. I had a very full class  and  kept them busy learning techniques for preserving and lifting whites showed them how to paint  white objects. It was a lot to pack into just 6 hours :D

This is my finished demo painting

It's been a hard days night!


I began this painting in a beautiful woodland garden at the Schomberg Garden Tour a couple weeks ago, worked in it some more at First Friday Richmond Hill yesterday, and put the finishing touches to it at home today. Even rascal raccoons can be peaceful sometimes. This little one is snoozing in the sunshine high up in a tree.
