April  1 16 x 20 inches Oil on Canvas 

"April No. 4" 16 x 20 inches, Oil on Canvas

Some workshop efforts..

Both of these paintings were done at the Robert Liberace workshop at the Southern Atelier in Rainy Sarasota Florida.  The first one was probably a 2 hour sketch with just Burnt Sienna, a Bit of Burnt Umber and white.   I really loved the poses she took ( and Rob set) !  A lovely model and a great workshop with Rob!   The Second painting was on the last day and I really only got it started ( full color using ( or trying to employ) Rob's skin tone color space.  Probably 3 hours or a bit more I am not sure.   I got some great insights as usual and wish I had spent the rest of that day and the following working on this  - but I had to jump on a plane.

If you are even thinking of taking one of his workshops, I can only say: "GO!"  (NOW!)

Lucky you Kevin, I have a few of Rob's videos and I do hope maybe one day I might get to meet the man in person!
Are you on your summer break now?

The first pose is lovely and it's good to see what you can do with just three colours. Is the background Raw Umber with white?

I attended a workshop a couple of years ago with him at The Southern Atelier. It was purely amazing. Great place to learn too.
