A few people have asked for a larger scan of Lucy so they can see more of the details. I try to save Hi rez images for the yearly sketchbook, but here is a detailed section. At this level you can see that colors are more layered rather than blended.

Don't you just hate it when work, obligations, and life get in the way of a good blog? I've just gone through a crushing few months as a result of a scheduling perfect storm. Things are starting to calm down now and I'm reacquainting myself with long neglected things like this blog, and um sleep.
Pat, a friend of mine from our figure drawing sessions, has given me a weekly reminder of my lack of an updates. Okay Patman, so now that I've finally listened to you, how about a quid pro quo and give me a two-minute stop and check during the next session?
Yesterday was the first of a three-part watercolor workshop I'm hosting here at the studio. It was a solid and friendly group with a nice flow of questions. This first session was primarily a lecture and demonstration, but everyone got to do a few exercises. The next two sessions will be a little more hands on, and I'll get a chance to look over other people's shoulders. It was originally scheduled as a free hour workshop, but I refused to stop painting and the students refused to leave. I think we snuck in an extra hour and a half or so before hunger ushered us out of the studio.
Lucille here was the painting I worked on during the demonstration. She was a great subject and offered countless opportunities to explain a variety of picture making techniques.
