Here is a continuation of the workshop with Eric Wiegard. The second day's lesson was on not overmixing the paints on the palette, and connecting shapes similar in value. Eric would touch his brush to 3, 4, or 5 colors and them do a figure 8 on the palette to just barely mix the colors. That way there would be a variety of colors in each stroke. He did a value sketch of a marine scene and then did a full sized painting. Having been around boats his whole life, he knows what all the parts are and what they look like. Even with a photo I'm sitting there trying to figure out what certain parts are and what they're connected to. lol I did this painting from one of my own photos of Maine.
