No. 565 Cool Light, Warm Light workshop

Cool Light Study - Onion
Oil on Canvas
Inspired by the gorgeous paintings of my dear friend Janice Kirstein, I recently attend an excellent workshop on painting in cool light/warm light. The workshop was taught by the amazing duo of Janice and a her friend Pat Clayton. I came away with a much better understanding of this challenging subject. Also, I finally feel I can take this knowledge and successfully push the colors of my paintings if I want to.

Mandarin painted with a "warm" light source.

I hope they teach this workshop again because I want to go back!
