Samples For Upcoming Painting Workshops

This week, I have been busy creating sample paintings for my upcoming workshops.  It’s going to be a very busy spring and summer!

Trees, baseballs and arrows… A few of the workshops are for local library programs, so I created paintings that went along with their summer theme of “sports.”

I have a “Paint along with me workshop” for adults as well as a few painting workshops for teens scheduled for this spring and summer.

My niece loves arrows, and I am enjoying watching the Arrow TV show with my husband.  Also, I shot a bow and arrow when I was a kid, so I figured I should include an arrow painting.  Actually, I think it will be a really good instructional painting.  I painted three arrows with each one having more details/difficulty, so they become more challenging as you paint each one.

This picture below shows the different sizes.  (And notice there’s only a tiny bit of paint on my fingers!)  🙂

It was an interesting process to create a painting, knowing I would be teaching a beginning student how to paint it.  I actually took notes in my sketchbook as I painted and wrote down all the paint colors I used.  I also tried to keep the color palette’s pretty simple and used just two brushes.  It was certainly a different process than when I paint my own paintings. But I did have fun with it, especially the little baseball. I think I may need to do a couple more sports balls… you know, just so I have more examples.  🙂

Have a wonderful, creative, day, Janell

  1. Hi Elizabeth, yes, I do love teaching workshops, I teach quite a variety and working with teens either makes me feel young or really old! 🙂 I knew a realist painter who developed a tremor and he quit painting. His wife urged him to try impressionism painting and he did and they are absolutely gorgeous! I hope they found your luggage — I am assuming your camera was in your carry-on luggage!
