I had a great time this past weekend attending a plein air painting workshop with master painter TM Nicholas in Gloucester, MA! During the two days he did two demos and we painted in the afternoon in two locations in Gloucester. He visited each of students (nine total) and offered his suggestions. At the end of the workshop he critiqued each painting. What an intensive workshop and a great learning experience! Below is TM doing the demo on Sunday and my painting of "View from Fisherman's Park", oil on canvas panel, 12" x 16".
I had a great time painting in my basement studio this 12" x 16" oil painting on a canvas panel. I used my own photos that I had taken of a local scene. I had to climb down an embankment under a bridge to get this view!
Little River Autumn View
I have 14 paintings on display and for sale at Mama Cakes on Elm Street in downtown Westfield, MA. Included are two acrylic paintings, one watercolor and the rest oil paintings. Also, I have a large rack of loose matted original watercolor paintings. They will be there for the rest of the month and three weeks into February. Stop by to check them out and have a coffee and delicious cupcake!
