Sutter Creeks California Gold
We did get to do some painting... and whoa... were we busy!! 17 students joined me ( hosted by Anelie Belden) for Painted Quilt Art Sat. and Sun. What a group! We were so busy I only got a couple pics but will show some here.
Anelie ( whom I met at Asilomar this year) had already taken to this method so she tackled a challenging portrait. She has more to do ( darkening eyes, adding background.) but clearly... this is a winner. It's nice when you can see the reference photo too.
Nancy has this 1 year + gorgeous kitty ( yes... that incredible blue IS the eye color). WOW!!! The unusual eye reflections made this a real challenge to capture accurately. I know Nancy was happy, therefore I am happy with the result.
I'll post a couple more tomorrow. I'm bummed I didn't get a chance to photo EVERY piece. Students who forward me a photo of their work will get a brag posting!!! :-)
