Compass Atelier Class

Things have been crazy busy and then snowmageddon happened. So here's post on what's happening at the Compass Atelier class with instructor Tom Semmes.

Previous post showed the charcoal sketch so we could learn to 'see' what we were to paint. Then we painted a grayscale painting of the setup which (sorry) I forgot to photograph.  Last two weeks have been painting in color, using a limited palette of Titanium White, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow Light and Pthalo Blue.  

First pass:
8x10 oils (That's Tom Semmes in the background)
Blocking in main color shapes.

Second class: refining
Like my pinwheel flowers? lol.  Obviously, needs a lot of work still but next week is on to a new project.

Have learned a lot so far so if you are looking for classes visit
