One week, two workshops!

The week of 10/11 through 10/16 was QUITE a week, and I am finally finding time to update.  Monday through Thursday, I was at a Fred Graff  watercolor workshop learning to loosen up, be more creative, and have fun with experimenting and pushing the envelope while paying attention to composition, shapes, and values.  Saturday found me at a Ken Kirkland pastel workshop and guess what?  I heard a lot of the same words!  Composition, shapes, values!  Wonderful reinforcement!  And, even though it was a different medium on Saturday, luckily the same principals apply, so the transition was virtually seamless.
