Last Day of Elin Pendleton’s Workshop

Day 5 of Elin’s workshop was all about Skies and Back Lighting. My Husband Kent, was kind enough to drop by VoilArt gallery and snap a picture of all of us. It was a wonderful group of artists ranging from beginners to professionals and I have to say we all had a great time. Being…

“glad you had a great time!”

I think the pill boxes are handy too, although I would only use them for acrylics. So glad you had a great time and your “elan” (antelope?) painting is fantastic! Your style + lots of color, it’s an eye catcher.

I like them cause I am constantly interrupted when I paint, lots of stop & go & its nice to keep the colors clean. I will still use my Stay Wet palette, love that too. Thanks so much, I’m thrilled you liked my “elan” and my work, coming from you its an honor :)

Day 4 of Elin Pendleton’s Workshop

Day 4 of Elin’s workshop was full of Vibrant colors. The theme was to add chroma, and be Bold! We painted sunsets or evening light. Above is a picture of Elin using and old postcard of a Florida landscape and making it her own. For this time of day, we are looking for DRAMA! Strong…

Another great post Maggie. I love your WaterBuck painting so far and I really love how you used your son, Max’s photo. It is a wonderful photo with great composition, great job Max! Also, a great photo of the two of you. :) I really loved the greens that you used in the painting and the dash of bold colors that Elin used. Makes it really pop nicely. :) Thanks for taking the time to do yet again another post, your blog readers thank you! :)

Wow! I love the paintings you’re producing Maggie…it’s still your own special style only with some extra zing. The color is just gorgeous.

Thanks so much for the shout-out!

WOW! You’ve been busy. What a great collection of work in such a short period of time. Love the colors and the style is clean and crisp, yet loose. Awesome! Can’t wait to see tomorrow and Friday! Bet you’re tired :)

Wendy - May 6, 2010 - 1:48 am

Oh sweet Maggie such a great post! You really give your readers a lot of information that you ate learning. I feel like I am learning something too by reading your posts. Thanks for taking the time to do a daily blog posting of each day. It is wonderful! You are doing great! That picture with the wild horse and you is awesome! Yay to your hubby for being so supportive while you are taking this class. Can’t wait to read about day 4.

Sharon Crute - May 6, 2010 - 7:57 am

Amazing, Maggie. I bet about now you’re feeling overwhelmed. You have a great start on that painting…horses are tricky.

Love seeing my own horse paintings in the background of your photos! :)

Thanks so much Sharon, coming from you its a huge compliment! I have to practice drawing horses a lot, & learn the anatomy. I love being around your paintings, they just are so dynamic & powerful. I linked your site on my post & will talk about you in tonight’s post :)

Day 2 Elin Pendlenton’s Workshop

Day 2 of Elin Pendleton’s Color Boot camp brought a lot of information. Elin explained in detail the Color  System and why & how it works. Fascinating that you can use 7 cool colors & 7 warm colors to make all the colors you will ever need. Our 1st assignment was to paint a Moon…

This looks like a wonderful workshop! How wonderful that you get to take it! Makes me wish (yet again!) that I painted. Have a wonderful time tomorrow too. I love your finished piece.

lovemyponies - May 5, 2010 - 10:22 am

Love these posts, it’s very interesting to non-artists as well. Can actually understand about the values:) Your Aussie painting is amazing!

Wendy - May 5, 2010 - 10:37 am

Wow! The class looks soooo fun! An hour and a half to do a painting? Oh yikes! You are doing awesome! Your dog painting is wonderful and I love the action in it and what a beautiful picture of you painting it. Look forward to day 3! :)

Sandy - May 5, 2010 - 10:38 am

You did great!!!! Love the finished painting :0)

maggiesangels - May 5, 2010 - 7:10 pm

Thanks so much!

maggiesangels - May 5, 2010 - 7:12 pm

Thanks so much! Its tough to paint that fast. I did bring it home & worked on it for a little longer, she still is not happy with it, cause I don’t have any textures in the grass, but I wanted the attention on the motion of the dog. So… Its fun, & really hard cause its the polar opposite of what I do in a way.

maggiesangels - May 5, 2010 - 7:16 pm

Thanks! I’m glad you like the posts & you can see the values. That is really important & as an artist we know it, but sometimes forget to plan our values, & ask ourselves the time of day, so I’ll apply that to all my paintings from now on. Hope you come back tomorrow too :)

maggiesangels - May 5, 2010 - 7:17 pm

Thanks! I am lucky to be taking this workshop thanks to my husband cause a lot of my responsibilities have landed on him, & I love him for doing them :)

Wendi - May 16, 2010 - 4:48 pm

I have never tried painting in glazes but I just recently got a book from the library on how to do that in oils. :)
Wow, you mix paint on the canvas? I always mix on the palette. I am so eager to see what you all do next.
This makes me want to take a painting class but I think I just need to practice more on my own first.

Maggie - May 16, 2010 - 4:48 pm

Thanks Wendy!
I’m thrilled u liked my post. The class is fun. I already know a lot of what she is saying, but her color system is polar opposite of how I paint, plus I paint in glazes & I mix as I paint on the canvas, she paints thick already mixed on palette. So I’m learning a new way to handle paint. Fun! I know 3 women that R taking the class, & they r amazing artists, it’s nice to see how they work & solve the assignments. :)

Wendi - May 16, 2010 - 4:49 pm

OMG I loved your blog post! I am so proud of you! You are doing so well! :). I loved your silly painting. Such great colors and composition. Can’t believed you whipped that out in an hour. I would of got maybe part of the dog done in an hour lol!
