Greg Biolchini Workshop

Greg conducted a w/s in conjunction with the Pastel Society of N. FL national a couple years ago. The workshop was in my home studio. It was a bit too crowded with 15 participants but it was a good event, nevertheless. Greg brought easels and, lamps, and tables for still life setups for all. Unfortuantely, using artificial light prevented using the north light from my studio's 14 big windows on the north wall.

The Setup



Starting a Demo

Thats a full bottle of Pinot Grigio on the window sill

Laying on Pastel


(my greyhound Cookie Dog was in dog heaven with all the attention)


Drying the turp wash


Another completed Demo



While I was taking these photos - I looked out the window and this is what I saw under my bird feeder...

Taking some sun

Poor bunny was crippled .. I never saw him again - probably taken by a predator.



After the workshop Greg did an extra demo on the beach for those interested.

Re: Greg Biolchini Workshop

Thanks for sharing this Jim. Greg's demo has luscious color. Cookie Dog is lucky to be small enough to fit into the studio with "guests". My two goldens would also love to "help", but between their size and wagging tails....

Love the bunny picture - we once rescued a baby bunny and it was our house pet for about 5 years until my allergies just made it impossible to keep her any more. She was a domestic variety of rabbit - Rex - and had the most velvet like gray fur. The Humane Society advertised her on the radio, and she got a good new home much to my relief.

WOW! is that beach right near your home? The white sand is really beautiful. So ok, I'm not from a beach area and don't know if this is typical or as extraordinary as it looks to me.

Peggy

Boy, some people don't realize they've died and gone to heaven already, do they? HOW many north windows in that huge studio? And HOW FAR did you say it was to that beach???? Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

It's a little less than 3 miles -- as the seagull flies --

Re: Greg Biolchini Workshop

I was on Sanibel Island a few weeks ago. (Heaven on earth, for those of you who've never been.) I wanted to sign up for Gregg's class there but it didn't work out with our arrival time, family commitments, etc. Now I'm really wishing I had somehow worked it out! Looks like it he gives a great workshop. And your studio.... ahhhhhh, talk about heaven on earth!
Thanks for sharing the photos. And I love the seagulls - just wonderful!

Molly (watergirl) said something very similar earlier this year after attending his portrait workshop. As the rest of the country becomes more familiar with his name and reputation, he is becoming more and more in demand as an instructor. I suspect if you want to take a workshop from him, ya better do it sooner rather than later. Teaching and remaining current in your own work is very tiring!
