A Few Days on Long Island


I've recently returned from a three day workshop run by Duane Keiser in Greenport, LI.  I learned a lot, met some wonderful people and spent a good deal of time painting.  Except for having to transverse the Long Island Expressway it was a perfect week.

If you're a painter and you want to up your game a bit and explore what's possible for you and your art; take a Duane Keiser workshop.  Ok, unpaid testimonial complete; now to the evidence:

The first exercise involved painting the same still life over and over in 30 seconds.  Paint, wipe it off and do it again.  Finally, Duane gave us 10 minutes to do the still life and the results are above.  Not bad for 10 minutes if I do say so..

The second day included a slightly more complex still life.  Emphasis on color and how those colors relate to one another.  You could have heard a pin drop the afternoon the limited class worked on their pieces.  I enjoyed the work immensely.  More details next time.  Thanks for stopping by.
