DAy 5 Marc Hanson Workshop

 Day 5 Marc Hanson - memory exercise
Day 5 Marc Hanson - same scene only viewing 
This is a wonderful exercise - first stare at the scene for 2 min and then turn your back and paint for 15 min. do this for about and hour or 4 sessions. Then Paint the same scene only looking at it like normal. Wow. Obviously the weather had changed but the concept is powerful.

Marc Hanson Workshop 3

4 color palette 8x10 real fun
full palette 11x14
What is not shown is the primary color palette. Just couldn't get that to work. I use the typical excuses. The ground was too slippery, the brushes were too stiff, the sun was in my eyes etc, etc.
Just couldn't get it to work. I will try again.

Day 2 Marc Hanson workshop

Day 2 Marc Hanson workshop- the exercise is to use the split primary palette. 
(cool yellow) - cad lemon
(warm yellow) cad yellow deep
(warm red) cad red light
(cool red) Aliz crimson
(cool blue) Ultra marine
(warm blue) pthalo blue
It is confirmed. I do not like pthalo blue.
 it is really difficult to work with a color bias system especially if you already have a comfortable palette. But.. this is a great exercise to get the old noggin working and not just using muscle memory. I will need to do this again and again.
