John Michael Carter Workshop

Paintings in the blogpost for today were created in a demonstration by John Michael Carter.

In the beginning . . . 

       there was the model, canvas, paint and turpentine...


The master created a likeness of the model upon the canvas  . . .

              .  .  .  and the Students saw that is was  

I attended a workshop led by John Michael Carter, http://www.johnmichaelcarter.com/, last week in Madison, IN.
It was a wonderful two days of demos, learning, painting, 
chatting, critiquing, etc, etc.  I definitely enjoyed his teaching style - it reminded my of my formal training at Herron.  

From start to finish, his demo was 3 hours in length.  Of course, he was speaking to us during the demo so the amount of time actually spent painting the canvas I'm guessing was about 1 hour, if that.  It was good to hear him reinforce very basic principals and approaches.  And, you know, how someone gives you the same information that you have heard before, but, says it in such a way as it finally penetrates your thick skull?  Yup!  That was me!   

I enjoyed the workshop and I would recommend it very highly.  I think it was a solid investment of my money and time!  I'm very excited to put into practice what I learned.  Thursday night Alumni drawing/painting session here I come!
