The Bonita Art Center is a lovely art center, it is a wondonderful location with bright sunfilled studios. They offer workshops in all media. In this workshop we worked on a new compostion each day which helpd the students get a better understanding of the tecniqes used.
I find that is best for students to follow along with me step-by-step in using the same comopostion so they get a better understanding of how to apply the tecniques.
In Florida the light seems so much brighter and colors more vivid. I was inspired to paint this beautiful Hibiscus. Hibiscus can be a challenge due to their large pistol and single flowers. I truly enjoyed playing with these colors.
After my workshop at the Villages in FL I went and spent a couple of days on Sanibel and Captiva, small islands off the coast of Florida. It was a wonderful adventure, I went there because I heard so much about the multi color and different shells that are plied on the beaches. I thought this would be a perfect place to relax and get more referance material for paintings.
I was amazed how relaxed all the shorebirds were, you were able to walk right up to them without them flying away. This should give you a good idea of how wonderful the beachs are - perfect for shelling.
My Florida Workshops over the next couple of week will be the last Big Workshops for 2012. I will soon post my 2013 Workshop Schedule.
I am really hoping over the next couple of months that I am finally able to work more on the new DVD's along with "maybe" writing another book. I have so much that I want to share.
Yes this is the Golf Cart Capital of the World - and yes it does feel like an adult Disney Land. These little carts are so much fun and Way too cute.
