Pansies- unfinished 9"x12" oil on linen panel M Maxam
This was the first day of Kathy Anderson's workshop at Scottsdale Art School. She is a fun, generous and relaxed teacher and her work is fabulous for it's delicate shapes and beautiful clear color. You will see a few steps of her demo below and my partially finished painting above.I hope to be able to post both finished works tomorrow. Kathy is a member of the Putney Painters group, famously begun by Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik. She began her painting with washes of transparent color under the main design. She then, very deliberately places more opaque color onto those basics. More tomorrow...

Edges in her work are carefully considered. She will soften and sharpen edges as she builds the opaque color and works her brush in the direction that the petals lay.Pin It
