I had just finished a painting this morning (see below), and though I was happy with it, I knew I still was missing something. After the demo, I started my second painting of the day with confidence. I'm not finished yet, but I was able to do a complete, seemingly correct, block in. That may not sound like much to non painters, but it's a big deal.
I still have a long way to go, but I feel as if I finally have a complete road map to follow. I will tell anyone who has a passion for painting, to keep an eye on The Greenbrier's web site (click here), for the next painting workshop. Great location, fantastic atmosphere, world-class instructors, and fun workshop participants. It doesn't get any better than this.
PS: I'll take better photos of these when I get home this weekend.

Afternoon block in (I'll finish it in the morning)
