I was in at the start then got thrown out....and couldn't get back in, but I did hear Johannes Q&A session. So I, too, will have to wait until the last session gets published.
I'll be there at 12 midnight GMT to hear you tonight....hopefully!

Re: Session 2- 120 Paintings... Outline, discussion

Yes, thanks Larry! Most enjoyable! Was a bit confused at first, as I thought it was a repeat....then I realised you did it that way so we didn't miss out. And, of course, I only heard the first bit last time. So I take it you'll do week 3 next time....and so on? I enjoyed seeing the demo too

Re: Session 2- 120 Paintings... Outline, discussion

Hi Larry, I'm a newbie who listened to a few of your classes and excited about this 120 paintings. I see no posts have been made in a while, but I am forging ahead and going to post. I heard this past Tuesday that you were an art teacher. Any training that I have had was with my 8th grade art teacher and she is as fresh in my head as this posting. I would appreciate some feedback on this or where should I be posting. thank you so much Larry. I've been drawing, painting and doodling for 60 some odd years because I love it!

The painting has a nice luminous feel to it...good sense of light.

A caution is to be careful picking up a "trick" as I would call it...that some instructors out there wanting to sell their paint materials in a televised following teach...where trees are made "simply by..." and then perhaps they'll demonstrate dabbing...and you repeat this to create the crown/foilage.

Such cheapens, takes away from sharing with the viewer that special way that artists develop their eyes to see. We see in terms of shape, color, value, line, texture, etc., and what you want to project to the viewer is what you see, what you feel when standing on that location...perhaps different than what other artists might feel.

Oh...there are some general things we have in common, ways taught that are sound...blocking in the masses of the trees...cautious to find value groupings (darks, mids, light) and use sky to sculpt with negative space...light poking thru, around and in-between to give us a sense of the tree's caricature...and character...trunks...limbs etc., looking at a genuine tree and the interpreting that tree.

Its like getting one phrase down then traveling to another county and using it over and over thinking the locals might believe your understanding of their language is quite good. Dabbing leaves in as a specialized step is a give away that the eyes are not really interpreting what is seen...but what has become a "method of treatment"...

does that make sense???

Spend sometime on my blog...or visit say, Marc Hanson's blog...and see some of his demo steps on trees blocked in...and then sculpted and brought to life...

Hi

I want to start doing the painting a day challenge. I am not sure where to post them. I do not have a blog.
