Lori Putnum Workshop, June 2014, NY demo

This was the demo on the morning of the first day.

Middle values
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 sharing this! So happy to have you along.

    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.
