A little bit of happy

This is a close up of one of the paintings I'm working on in the workshop. One of the things I'm trying to do is get more paint on the canvas. Some areas are more successful than others!   

Ovanes is a wonderful teacher and I feel like I could work on what he tells me in five minutes for a life time, and I probably will!  On Friday night he treated up to the BEST DEMO EVER.  He started about nine p.m. and painted until two in the morning.  Then he excused us and took about an hour or so of quiet time to put on a few well thought out touches.  He did an amazing job on a 48 x 60 inch canvas.  A true pleasure to watch.  Sorry I can't post a photo but he doesn't post work on line for copyright reasons.  He will have a DVD available so if you're interested please email me @ brucebingham@gmail.com and I'll give you more information.

  2. I'm sure he knows what he's doing, but not posting online at ALL? For copyright reasons? Watermarks? How do people hear about him? Unfortunately, though very curious, I would never buy a DVD of someone I have no knowledge of! OH, lucky you! It seems your workshop has inspired you! Can't wait to see what YOU will publish, and so glad it went well...

    1. Hi Kelley, He doesn't do computers and his paintings sell for about a zillion dollars so I guess he can afford not to! hummm, maybe I should spend more time painting and less time on the computer! You should check out his work if you're not familiar, he's a fantastic colorist! Thanks for commenting!

  5. It's been a great learning experience. When I go to a workshop I really try to understand the instructors approach and give it a whirl. The results are sometimes less than I'd like at first. But I've had more than a few Ah Ha moments! Thanks for commenting:)
