Today was my next to last demo for the August Portrait Artist Workshop at the School of Visual Arts.
I'll be returning to lead a two-week workshop in Atlanta. I schedule my lectures in the evenings and on the intervening Sunday. This way I can cover valuable information without taking away from model painting time.
When the meter is running how is it possible to create great paintings? I'm afraid I can't buy that the best strategy for a long, satisfying and lucrative career is churning out substandard work.
I was leading an oil portrait workshop when a very well-known realist artist and teacher looked at the students' work and remarked, "I have been to many workshops, including my own, and I've never seen this kind of progress, ever!”
