Accordion sketch book

I have to say I was so impressed with one of my students Debbie Abshear at my Calistoga workshop this month. Debbie does a lot of Plein Air Painting and is always doing value sketches where ever she goes, either in her note book or as you can see here, in an accordion sketch book which she make herself. I loved what she was doing and want to share her talent with you, basically she does quick studies to help her find her values then places the local color along side with a few notes. Love the affect and her work.

Debbie can make these sketch books any size that she likes

This was a beautiful painting that she did

Fall Colors

I was so impressed to see how everyone did during the workshop. 
This wasn't an easy painting to do and they all did so well, with the large luminous washes, building texture, negative and positive painting, it was really exciting to see them all together.


Karen handled the negative space and shadow on the grapes beautifully .

Love the smile Julie, true happiness...Great job
