Painting of the day result of my painting demonstration

Image
During the One Painting in One Day workshop, I demonstrate different techniques, and ways of representing wall texture, door texture, depth.  As a result, by the end of the workshop I have a half finish painting. At times I take some extra time to finish it. I use this painting to sow different participants how to paint the texture of the wall, a flower pot, flags, a street lamp. And when we are faced with a "mistake" I demonstrate how we can incorporate it into the painting.

Some of workshop participants paintings some are the first painting ever!

We believe that all the paintings created by the workshop participants truly reflect the energy and colors of San Miguel de Allende and Mexico in general! class via skype 

September 2015 at Cristi Fer Art Studio in San Miguel de Allende

During the month of September several small groups attended our One Painting in One Day, Doors of San Miguel workshop! What a wonderful time to be in San Miguel! The days are bright and sunny with occasional rain in the evening. The rain appears to came from nowhere ! One moment the sky is blue, next the wind starts followed by a rapid rain, that leaves as fast as it arrived. One Painting in One Day, Doors of San Miguel is our most popular workshop at this moment. Many of the participants never painted before, some did not painted since school days, and some are artists who did not find room in their life for art lately and are looking for a place to re start painting. If you travel to Mexico and San Miguel is on your itinerary, consider taking a workshop with us! Cristi Fer Art Studio

Sunday take it easy and relax

Our studio, Cristi Fer Art, has a retreat atmosphere, always relaxing, quiet most of the time away from the parades and busyness of Centro. It's only 25 min walk to La Paroquia but it feels so different out here! We have tons of birds changing with the season, humming birds all year around, several types of lizards, a fountain with fish, the happy dog and the new cat. After a constant busy time of painting, teaching, and events, last sunday I just relaxed around the yard. Took some photos as I was playing hide and sick with the sun.
