Here's an overview of how the studio looked today while Jessica, Connie, and I painted at the Herman Greef House. This is the parlor room transformed!
The paintings on the walls are original to the home. The girl portrait was a recent donation to the Bentonsport Improvement Association and is of a family member of the last postmaster of Bentonsport.
The studio is a "work-in-progress" in that easels will change and I'm building a small platform to put the winged back chair on for days we have a model to sit for us. The platform will be something easy to dismantle for storage when not in use.
For workshop/classes where we all do a small still life study, I'll have a folding 6ft. table that can be set up in the center of the room. This should allow for up to 5 people to sit and work comfortably on projects.
Here's the first oil study for the day......and.......
here's the second oil I worked on this afternoon.
Practice! Practice! Practice!
