Trying to stay loose while painting and focus more on expression than exactness. I painted this chick with one larger brush and stayed way back from my easel. If you want to paint loosely you have to implement these practices. I painted this on a 6 x 6" canvas.

This was the demo I did at my workshop last Friday. We focused on painting simple still life pieces. I titled this painting after a James Taylor lyric. It is funny how it coincides with the short story I would like to tell. Thursday afternoon and early Friday morning before the workshop participants arrived, I was doing a little practice / warm up painting. I painted two scrapers. ( I scrubbed them out) Not a good feeling when these folks were paying to come learn from me. I was pretty shaken but felt that if I slowed down and listened to the the information I was sharing with them that I would be fine. I was teaching to the teacher. It all worked out and I had a very talented group. I am not able to show you how well they did because we had a rainy Saturday and did not go out and take photos. Glad we got a group photo on Friday.
This piece is painted on an 11 x 14" canvas.
