What a week! I had the best time and learned so much about oil painting from Dreama Tolle Perry at a Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio workshop. I learned how to use dark transparent paints to start the painting. We drew the painting and blocked in transparent colors with a generous amount of medium. On the second round we used our local color and no medium to lay the lighter values. Each time we changed a color, the brush had to be cleaned in order to keep the next color as pure as possible. The paintings vibrate with color and energy. Here are some examples.
