April Demo

From the beginning with 25 MMAG Members, set up and ready to embark on a workshop with Mark MaHaffey Saturday April 6. Bringing Plein Aire into the Studio.  

 

Starting with creating an interesting composition, using a value studies, light, dark and mid tones.  

Mark demonstrates the how too, as he explains the process.  

 

 

 

After lunch we learn how to create colors, from the primaries and white, using a split complimentary scheme. Keep it very simple working from the black and white study. Now the work begins!  

Before we get to work we watch before our eyes a 15 minute creation with instruction.

There is the sketch in values of black and white, the original average photo and the painting!  

 

 

Now the group has to preform a number of value sketches using this technique.

 

 

Now the students begin applying the instruction, keeping it simple and fast! Not easy!
