Days One of Karin Jurick's Workshop

Day #1 - I was so excited to begin the learning process at this Hilton Head, SC, workshop conducted by Karin Jurick of Atlanta.  I have admired her figurative oil paintings for years.  I first learned of Karin through her painting challenges and have been a faithful blog follower ever since.

We started the day with a presentation of the photographs she takes and then the paintings she does from those photographs.  It was amazing to see what she can do with a photograph that most of us would consider "bad".  She then showed us what she does to improve on the photographs through the magic of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.

The first day ended with a wonderful demonstration on a photograph each artist will paint on day two.  We gathered around Karin and watched the magic begin.  She only uses flat brushes and uses a pizza pan with approximately fifty paint colors.  Actually, during this demonstration she only used one brush and washed it in Gamsol after most strokes.
