The first day of my workshops is always the hardest. I usually start out the workshop a bit sleep deprived. There is a lot of work getting prepared for the workshop plus I am basically out of commission the entire time. So finishing all of my other work adds to the amount that has to be done before the workshop.
Today was wonderful. I am really lucky that the six women in the class are so wonderful. We are having a blast at the beach house and we can't wait to get to the beach whenever possible for long walks! This morning we enjoyed coffee on the beach while enjoying the dolphins! And of course we had fun hunting sea glass.
Today we spent a lot of time painting small abstract paintings on canvas paper. One of the hardest things to learn about painting abstracts is how important it is to be patient. It takes a long time to paint an abstract painting so we focused on composition, color palette and using a photo of a room to inspire our paintings. Then we all started a large painting, which will be finished tomorrow morning. I can't wait!
