We had another wonderful week with the talented artist and instructor, Ted Nuttall, for a workshop on watercolor portraits working from photo reference. Everyone had great things to say about Ted as an instructor. His demos were filled with explanation and tips and he spent a lot of time with each student at their easel.
This was Ted’s demo on one of the days of the 5 day workshop.
We also have four-footed guest for the week, Loki, an Australian Shepherd. He enjoyed hanging out by the back door of the studio so that he could keep an eye on his “mom.”
Meanwhile outside the studio the weather was becoming very Fall-like. The night temps were going down to the 40s, so it was time to close the pool. Though the pool area is still a lovely place to sit for lunch or just to take a breather from the intenseness of the class.
The front porch of the Main Inn was a popular place to gather before dinner for a drink of wine or a frosty mug of beer.
“Ann is a gem, one of a kind teacher, she has a way of explaining that you get! Makes class fun! – a student in Ann Lindsay’s
Fun is definitely what this class had. It was a 3-day workshop focused on the value of value studies and Ann said she “worked them hard!”
Ann provided lots of demos and samples to illustrate her points.
The rest of the photos were captured from the student workspaces around the studio. Lots of good work!
With the beautiful weather we’ve been having, the class enjoyed sitting out on the front porch of the inn before dinnertime. A happy crew!
Ann Lindsay is scheduled to return in 2017 to teach a 5-day workshop.
