first day practice.

The first day of Karin's workshop she did a demo of "flip, flop, flip". She then gave all the students a copy of the photo to paint. So much fun to paint. I edited out the fishing tackle box and the extra flip flop. She made it look a lot easier to paint than it was. Her drawing and painting skills are magnificent. I was able to see the original "flip,flop, flip" at the Morris Whiteside gallery in Hilton Head. It absoultely glowed. So nice to see her other gallery paintings up close and personal. Breath taking!
I have moved on to Charleston now. Stunning drive over from Hilton Head. Can't wait to explore the city. Karin is painting in Washington Park tomorrow.
I will tell you more about the workshop in the next few posts. The absolute thrill of a lifetime.
This painting is painted on an 8 x 10 panel and is $1000.00. JK, It's just for me.

  1. I knew you would be a natural! Great to get the update on the week and some pics. Will look forward to your post about her plein air tomorrow. $1000....hmmmm....I might be interested...I'll get my piggy bank out!

  2. Very nice painting... I like the reflections in the wet sand and the light. The atmosphere is very peaceful and i like it very much.
    Beautiful colors too.

    Sorry if my english is bad...

  3. Beautiful job! Don't you just love Charleston?

  4. Great painting and sounds like it was a wonderful experience!

    Enjoy Charleston - it's a charming city.

  5. I am so jealous...a KJ workshop is on my short list of workshops. This is wonderful, thanks for sharing the details.

  6. I don't blame you for keeping it for yourself, it is stunning! Sounds like you had a great time. I am attending a workshop this weekend with Qiang which is also very informative and exciting. I don't have the courage to try to paint his demo though.

  7. Fabulous work Carol! Can't wait to see more
