This is a painting of a lily. I first drew it in pencil and then used watercolour to colour it in. I'm thinking about putting this painting on a cushion. What do you think of the idea of having this design on a cushion? #lilyart #lily #lillypainting #lilypaint #watercolour #eatercolourpainting #pencildrawing #traditionalart #fineart #fineartpainting #fineartpaintinganddrawing #fineartpaintinings #obersvation #observationaldrawing #observationalpainting #flowerart #flowerartist #flowerpainting #flowerpaintings

A very beautiful and robust painting by Kathleen Gadway @kmgadway from my recent painting course in France and some words from her about the course.
‘Dear Dean and Jo,
I enjoyed painting with you in the Dordogne. The venue was magnificent and Noelle’s cooking was an unexpected luxury. The views from the chateau patio were breathtaking and the motifs over the river seemed unending wherever we looked.
The week we spent painting with you and Jo was fabulous; everything I wanted. The breakfast discussions about art concepts, with examples of historic and contemporary artists made for a great way to start the day. The demos we’re the best! I learn a lot from watching you paint. I also appreciated the critiques you provided while visiting me at my easel. I probably learned more from your “over the shoulder” guidance and positive feedback.
Marcell enjoyed his first painting trip; thank you for being his first teachers.
Hugs and I hope to see you again soon,
Kathleen”

It’s allowable to post one selfie a month without being vain, right?  Me working in the studio.  Actually taken by a good friend, not me.

Fogged in at Marinheadlands. I’m standing on the South Rodeo Beach trail looking towards Hill 88... just as I finished blocking it in the fog descended. I’ll finish it another time. #oilpaint #premiercoup #observationalpainting #marinheadlands #hill88 #blockin
An absolutely wonderful and expressive painting by Marcel Hall, Kathleen Gadway's husband. This is the 3rd or 4th painting he's ever painted!! I've never seen a painter progress so rapidly! I thoroughly enjoyed my week with you guys, so glad you both could come!

My first ever oil painting! I decided to try using a bunch of different textures to figure out what I'd like to use in future paintings. I love how it turned out, so I'm using it in my portfolio 😃 
Also i realized after posting my last photo of this painting that my phone didnt really capture the saturation of color, so that's why this looks more saturated than the photo before

I finally worked on this one some more... Do his shoes look big? Maybe not. Maybe it's a foreshortening thing. I'm sure it's fine. 🙌

I just received this wonderful message from Janet Stolle regarding her time with us during my course in France last month. This makes all the hard work worth while! ...and of course another one of her beautiful paintings;

I Wish I were Back at La Roque Gageac.
Dear Dean,
Thank you for the wonderful week of art immersion beginning with inspiring imagery over coffee. The persuasive power of your suggestions for thumbnails, as well as daily focus on planes, massing, color flow, chroma, etc. were the exact right notes to start each day. Most of all, thanks for your sensitive teaching approach - your comments were always easy to accept and right on the mark. 
The Dordogne is a most gorgeous venue and having a gifted, empowering teacher made it truly bliss. 
Merci to you and lovely Jo! I very much appreciate her aesthetic eye and thoughtful comments as well. 
With warmest regards,
Janet
