The focus of the workshop was painting children. Not portraits. She uses a limited palette of white (lukas) and a cool and warm of each of the primary colors. I thought it would be harder for me to trim down my palette but I really liked it. She emphasized finding direction in your composition, the s shape in most human forms, getting the children's proportions right, not over working brushwork, high key color palette and the importance of edges. Lots more. I have one more painting that I will post tomorrow and will try to think of other thoughts. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to take from Nancy and to get to know some other artists at the workshop. It was a great time!
This study was painted on an 11 x 14" linen panel.sold
