Painting of the day June 23 2015

Image
This is a painting I was working on in parallel with the painting posted June 21. It represents a typical street vendor in San Miguel de Allende. I added cutouts from the local paper. My perspective on college, since I am a painter and I like to use my drawing skills in representational and abstract art, the colleges I ad to my paintings are only accents and enhance the color and composition. "Mexican Woman in San Miguel de Allende" Original mixed media by Cristi Fer Art 19.5" x 27.5"

One Painting in One Day it's not a gimmick

We at Cristi Fer Art Studio, offer our popular One Painting in One Day throughout June . I mention this because it was brought to my attention that some drawing/painting events offered by other artists in SMA, are discontinued through June. The One Painting in One Day workshop is offered Tuesdays and Thursdays. 9 AM to 12:30 PM Cost is $85 USD and includes all the materials and RT taxi from your condo/hotel to our studio. We are located in a beautiful villa with unobstructed light, 2 studios and a LARGE patio, in colonia Independencia. I also want to let you know that we are full time painters (teaching since 1989) and we teach because we enjoy to share what we love. Painting it's not a hobby or something we picked up after retirement. The workshop is not a gimmick.  We designed this workshop with the visitor and beginners in mind.  - My goal is to help you understand the principals of design, basic drawing and color.  - It is only 3.5 hour because we rea

The joy of painting, thoughts on painting and observation

Image
We consider ourself so fortunate to live in beautiful San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato! The weather is spectacular, sunny, most of the time, not too hot not too cold most of the time. The locals are friendly. All is easy and the days are smooth and peaceful. I paint in the morning as early as 8 AM and keep going until 2 PM or so. The painting just flows and I have so, so many ideas and projects I hope I'll have energy to produce all of them. I love taking the bus, taxies or just walk around. I believe one of an artist most important skills is OBSERVATION. It comes, I think from genuine interest in shapes, color, shadows, moods, and personality of a place. Even if I don't sketch I assimilate my environment. February flower at Cristi Fer Art Studio in San Miguel de Allende  As a kid growing us in Bucharest, I remember being interested in all this. After a shopping trip or a day in the park I will return home and paint what I have observed. I loved to watch the shapes
