good times

This is another painting I did at the workshop last week. Same little girls as earlier post. Loved the reflections in the water. Karin taught us a lot about working with your photos. She showed us some examples of bad photos that she had taken that turned into great paintings. Check back through your old photos and crop them, leave stuff out, pick out something minute that might be a good painting. She knows alot about photoshop and feels it is a great tool for artists. I am slowly trying to learn some things I can do with it. I am so excited about painting this week. Wish I had more time to put into it.
This is painted on a 6 x 6" panel.SOLD

  1. Carol,
    I love the girls and you captured their joy in playing in the water so well. I was afraid to tackle them at the workshop. You did a great job. I hope to paint them also one day soon- they were fun to watch and photograph.
    We did learn a lot about photoshop and we need to give Vince the patience award- he must have gone over the same thing with us all many times. He was great also. What an amazing week. Who needs to sleep right? Just paint!!! Miss y'all!

  2. Fabulous work Carol. Thanks so much for sharing your workshop experience. looking forward to seeing more.

  3. fabulous piece Carol, I love the reds in the shadows on the skin. This is just so fresh and charming.

  4. You seemed to get a lot out of your workshop with Karin, can't wait to see more of these beauties!
