Lots of paint was flying around the studio during Patti Mollica’s 5-day workshop, big gobs of it. Well, not actually flying around, but being lavishly applied to board in wonderfully colorful compositions. Every day Patti had the class focusing on a different stepping stone to good paintings – value, brush work, and color mixing. Before long the studio was filled with vibrant little paintings. Patti had people work on specific image exercises each day, but participants still had plenty of time to work on images of their choice.
Outside the studio the huge and ancient lilac bush was putting on it’s own color display. The pool is open and beautifully clear, but, yeah, still a bit cold!
Chef Mark is stirring up some great dishes this year. This one looks like the yummy Beef and Broccoli stir-fry. (Alternative dishes for special dietary requirements are always available with advance notice.)
It was an amazing and fun workshop. If you are one of the many who didn’t get in this year, Patti will be returning in 2017, so sign up early!
