Abiquiu Start

Abiquiu Start___16 x 20 study on canvas
In my Fredericksburg workshop today we started the day before sunrise. Later in the day, I demonstrated how I lay out or "block in" all my larger works. This image above is a 16 x 20 "start". I used a photo of mine, taken last year near Abiquiu, NM...Georgia O'Keefe country. I begin the larger works by using a paper towel to sketch the big forms and wipe in the values....I will "finish " this one soon....All week long I will post the demos and lessons from the workshop.
Let me know if you want to plan ahead for a similar workshop next year at tbout the same time of year.
