Jockeying For Position
14 X 11 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
$450 (FREE shipping in the U.S.)
Painted for the DSFDF challenge. Sometimes the hardest part of painting is choosing a subject. Before I started this I had been looking through my photo library trying to find an image to use as inspiration for a painting. At the last minute I checked the DSFDF blog and Karin had posted a new photo for us to work from. I was actually relieved that the choice had been made for me!
I haven’t had time to participate in the last few challenges but last week I had time to work on this one.
About a year ago a family member was kind enough to give me the gift of a 3-day workshop with Ken Auster. It couldn’t have come at a better time! I was primed and ready to hear what Ken had to say and after the workshop my paintings immediately improved. Ken is a master at painting cityscapes and everything I learned from him I applied here.
Have you take a workshop or class that has helped take your work to the next level? If so, I’d love to hear about it!
