Lori Putnum Workshop, June 2014, NY demo

This was the demo on the morning of the first day.
Notan block-in with wipe off
Composition
Darks
Middle values
Lights
Lori - I was fascinated by the little sunny shapes coming through her hat.
I'm finally getting the method of finding the middle value on my palette and on my painting.  I have had a glass palette for a long time and now I'm going to the wood palette for the middle value and no glare.  I got used to the glare and didn't realize the effect it was having on my eyes.  I did have a middle value on the glass palette and never took advantage of it.  I also have a plexiglass palette that has less glare but it's not easy to clean since its scratched up.

    1. Thanks for your comment and I have a couple of friends who are planning to attend one of your workshops. Actually the Rockport Art Association, Rockport, MA has asked me if you would be interested in doing a workshop there. I think they will be contacting you.

  2. this is a really nice report and shows what a good demonstration that was; unless Lori comes here to new harmony I probably will never see one of her demonstrations.
