I visited my friends at the Hoffman Estates Art League recently to put on a demo on Impressionist painting techniques. I took a traditional painting and re-worked it impressionistically. Here is the result after two hours of intense talking and painting. We discussed drawing, edges, and broken color, just to name a few things. This was painted using thick paint and flat brushes, switching to a palette knife at the very end.
And here's a little announcement: I've posted some favorite paintings as notecards for sale. If you would be interested, please click here.
