Day Two of Karin Jurick Workshop

On day two, it was the student artists time to paint.  We were given a photograph exactly like the one Karin painted in the demo of day one.  It was interesting to see how some artists free hand drew the "beach lady" while others were very slowly graphing it.  Then, the painting began with the flat brushes and the many colors.  My version is shown here.  I walked around the art studio and can honestly say, each and every artist did a unique but equally beautiful version.

Then, we watched a short demonstration of a portrait done from....a mugshot!  Karin drew it freehand and painted the mug in no more than thirty minutes.  Very fun to watch!

This portrait is only 4x 4".

Then, the student artists were invited to wine and cheese at the Morris and Whitesides Gallery in Hilton Head to meet the owner, get advice on gallery representation, and the opportunity to view the gallery without anyone but the student artists invited.  What an opportunity!!!
