Stephen Early Workshop 4/7-10/14 Castle Rock

 Stephen Early workshop #1 Aaron
love the way he talked about the dialog of painting and the use of color notes to keep relationships moving around the painting
 Stephen Early workshop #2 Crystal
the start with open Grisaille and then moving on to color notes is very logical and relational
 Stephen Early workshop #3 Aaron
 the highest level of painting is clearly expressing the concept. Mastery of painting is the way to reach the expression of the concept to others. I have a long way to go before everyone will know what I am expressing. Stephen Early is a master of his craft and is a wonderful teacher as well.

Colo River RMNP 11x14 pastel
not how I intended to paint this but this is how it turned out.
Eldorado Canyon 12x16 oil
Eldorado Canyon 9x12 oil
Light on the Bear 16x20 oil

Light on the Bear was originally painted as a 6x8 and will be at the AUM show in April but I liked it enough to want to paint it larger,  just to see. This is the larger version.
