Workshop Discoveries

My head is spinning after our whirlwind 
"One Hour Painting" workshop!
There were numerous "moments of discovery"
throughout the weekend
and I couldn't wait to share this one with you.  

On Saturday, after we did the Three Value Exercise,
one of the students showed us all the 
Value Viewer App on her phone.

You can take any photo and view it in grey scale, 
a notan (black and white) or in  "levels"
(three values- black, white, middle)
 this is THE most helpful "tool" for painters! 

So on Sunday when we did our Paintings from Photos, 
we had fun taking pictures of our pictures we wanted to paint,
and seeing the value plan instantly! 

The many discoveries made at workshops 
are priceless.  
Thank you everyone, for bringing such great ideas 
and creative enthusiasm to this one.
Happy Painting!
