Virtual Workshop Experiment

I'm going to be teaching an online painting workshop for the still life. Space is limited for the first one, and participants will be expected to provide feedback for improvements to the format and structure. April 4 and 5, about 11am CST, approx 2-3 hours each session. Space is limited.

EDIT: please note the dates were changed so everybody can go on an Easter egg hunt.

If you would like to take the workshop, please email me at lisagloria@gmail.com. Click here for more information.

Morning Glory #4 in progress

As promised, here is the side by side comparison of day 2 vs day 3 on morning glory #4. Sarah (during the webcast) said it looked done before i started, but no... i think side by side you can see there was a lot of work to do today. And still more to go. The leaf/vines and vase are not completed, just edged.


I probably wont broadcast the ending, it's catch as catch can around here as I try to finish a few simultaneous projects....

LIVE PAINTING SESSION WEDNESDAY

I'll paint the end of the morning glory tomorrow, 9:30 am CST, GMT -6. Probably only get to share about half, because 3rd day sessions are a lot about tickling the panel til it's right, and that might take a while. Sounds fun yes?

Spring flowers

5 x 7, oil on panel. This painting is available for sale. Please email me at lisagloria@gmail.com to inquire.

If anyone know what kind of flower these are, could you post it in a comment or email me? They are about 4-5 inches tall. That large leaf behind the front one is part of the plant, or I'd think it was a crocus. EDIT: It's a bloodroot - thanks Dave B! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloodroot

So, Lipking's workshop is coming up, and the materials list says titanium white. I haven't used titanium white in years and years... So I thought I'd give it a try. Loved it! I always think of it as opaque and indelicate, but I must have been using it wrong. It's very sensitive.

Bouquet #2 - Final

11 x 14, o/c, finished today in front of a live studio audience until the server gave up the ghost.

That was fun! I hope everyone enjoyed hanging out. It's nice to have company in the studio.

I won't have a live studio session tomorrow - I'm working on a couple news ones and making videos of the process. See you all next week!

Heather #9


11 x 14, oil on canvas. Looks like my camera is dying - can't seem to get a decent picture of it. Which is too bad, because the flesh tones in this are pretty good, I have to tell you.
Please email me at lisagloria@gmail.com if you are interested in purchasing it. Thanks!

Bouquet in prgress - day 2

Here is the progress of the bouquet commission, after day 2. Last night's session was streamed live on the web, and I've promised not to tinker with it unless the cameras are rolling. That's tough! It's a pretty complicated piece to be working on in front of everybody, but I'm feeling good about it so far.

Looks like about 2 more sessions left to go. I'll let you know when another is coming - probably Wed morning unless the background is tacky.

Carnations #3 - Final painting

12 x 12, oil on panel. I'll try to get a better pic tomorrow.

I saved step by step pics of this painting, so I will post that on ArtStudioSecrets as a step by step demonstration soon, and also the glazing section of this was already done as a demo on how to glaze, available here. I hear that page looks really weird in Safari - we're working on it but I am XML impaired.

I changed a bunch of things on the final day, going to a cooler background and warmer foreground, and shifting the focus toward the vase. This seemed like a natural plan since the vase is a little more interesting than humble carnations, and I'm pleased with that change.


What do you think?

LIVE PAINTING MONDAY

Hi I'll be working on the bouquet commission on Monday, streaming live from http://www.tinyurl.com/lisagloria starting at 3 pm CST. This is a later time so my international friends can tune in without sleep deprivation.

This will be the first color underlayer. Those who have asked about how to paint glass might find it a useful demonstration.
