Red Garnet Geraniums and more workshop

Red Garnet Geranium   oil    9"x 12"
At the workshop, Kathy had a wonderful variety of fresh flowers to choose from and I grabbed this geranium for it's color and I thought i'd be able to complete it in the time we had. For the most part, it is finished, but I will work on a few more edges before calling it done. It was another super day of painting and watching Kathy Anderson's wonderful demo, which you can see below. She has a great relaxed way about her instruction that seemed to work for everyone. I've met several wonderful artists this week, and we're all learning from each other, as well.

How lucky you are to be able to attend Kathy Anderson's workshop.
Being in France, I cannot.

I know well her work that I discovered some years ago. I have a great admiration for her style.

Very nice Mary! This class seems amazing. The real challenge will be when you return home and try to incorporate what you've learned into your own style... I find that part a head spinner!
