Fishing folks - Jane's workshop
16 x 20 Acrylic
On May 20th I attended Jane Slivka's workshop in Deland, Fla. Jane is so much fun and the day went by much faster than any Friday at the office! I met Jane about a year and a half ago at an art festival and immediately fell in love with her and her work. She is very talented but beyond that is a genuinely nice person. I was not completely satisfied with my painting, but after a little work felt like it was at least good enough to post to give you an idea of what we did at the workshop. This was just one of the two paintings we did that day. The other I'm still thinking about posting. We'll see. I particularly like the way Jane encourages us to paint the water and the reflections of the people in it. It always looks so easy when she does it. I had to work at it, but kind of like the outcome.
