The first afternoon in Hilton Head we all headed out to look for photos to work from. Glad we did because that was the only afternoon we had sunshine. I was pleased to get enough photos to keep me busy.
We all worked on the black primed gesso panels. Takes a bit getting used to but I really like the results.
Let me share a funny story from the workshop. There was this one soft spoken guy there that I had noticed really had a nice touch in his paintings. I asked him if he was in any galleries or sold work. He said he mostly gave things away to friends. I proceed to tell him that maybe he would be interested in doing some weekend shows, etc. Well.....he said that it might be hard with his permanent job. I asked what that was and he said he was a cartoonist. It was Jerry Scott who writes "Zits" and "Baby Blues"!! My face turned dioxazine purple wih embarrasment. He was very kind and super talented. Showed us some very large paintings he had done at home that were terrific. Maybe he will create a website or blogsite some day. In his spare time between doing weekend art shows.
