|Jeff Watts and his painting I purchased in 2007 that is on the front of his DVD|
I need to continue with my development and have decided to take what is probably my last opportunity to return to the Watts Atelier in Encinitas CA for a serious refresher. Jeff Watts is conducting a six day intensive course on portrait and figurative in oils.
I have spent the past few months using acrylics - plein air and studio. Catching up on commissions and gallery commitments. So I need to budget some time now to get back to oils and to do some portrait pieces. I will start by reviewing Jeffs DVD - which is excellent for quick portrait pieces.
Fun for me is that I purchased the small painting on the front of the video. Its a wonderful little piece and I was so pleased to see it used for the video.
When Jeff's workshop finishes I will attend the Weekend with the Masters near San Diego
where I will spent three days taking plein air with Ken Auster. I also have his DVD and have just revisited it for the first time in four years. Should be fun.
Cathy will be coming with me and will enjoy two weeks on the beach in Oceanside CA where we have stayed in our RV before - great spot.
Still room in both workshops if you want to join me!!!!!
