I had a wonderful day today learning more about painting at the Easton Studio and School in Easton, MD. Talented Louis Escobedo was our instructor for the 9 - 4 class.
We painted still life set ups. Louis did a demonstration first to show how to chisel in a convincing 3 dimensional peach form with juicy oil paint. He discussed how color is influenced by the color of the objects around it.
I am coming to believe that this painting thing that I love so much is 90 percent intellectual and 10 percent intuition. I keep hoping that I am up to the task.
Thank you to the class and to Louis for being so welcoming and gracious to me. A special thank you goes out to Linda K. for her invitation. I had an enjoyable time talking with her and her family this evening. God has put a kindred spirit in my path!
