First Day of workshop

Karin generously emailed us the image she was going to use for the first demo ahead of time. 
(We are all going to paint from that image as our first painting tomorrow) )   

This morning, Karin shared lots of images of paintings she has done from photos 
and we talked a lot about how to manipulate them on the computer. 
Then she did her demo.

Needless to say, it was amazing.  
We were then encouraged to get out and photograph NYC! 
A little daunted by the rain and lack of sunlight, but with camera ready,
I walked from 89th and 5th to 38th and Park!  
(That's 52 blocks!)  
I got some fun images to work with. 
Upper East Side private school kids getting picked up by Mom's and Nanny's,
Central Park dog walkers, bench sitters
 and Grand Central Station 
(great light coming in from those windows!) 
Stay tuned. 
This is a great adventure! 


  1. Nanny, I have no doubt you will have the most amazing photos to work from! 52 Blocks! Your feet must be so tired! I'm sure you'll be the BEST student! Can't wait to see tomorrow's post!

  2. I echo kelly's comments.....can't wait to see more.

  3. 52 BLOCKS? You ARE intrepid but in that setting, I'm sure it was just a treasure trove of images. I'm loving what vou did in Karin's workshop.
