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.

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.

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
