Trying to Pull It Off

6 x 6 Oil Paint on Gesso Board

     This is the final piece from the Qiang Huang workshop in Camel IN a little over two weeks ago.  I left my camera in Ohio last weekend at a Sgraffito glass drawing workshop (those pictures will follow) so this is the best picture I have at the moment.  It is enough to get the idea that I was trying to put the lessons learned together in this last piece.  Focus with sharp edges, suggestions with soft edges, thoughtful consideration of each brush-stoke. Qiang still had to remind me to vary the color slightly - well yeah!  All in all I'm happy with the result and now to incorporate the lessons. That is always the thing!


  1. I think you absolutely pulled it off, Gloria. This is really lovely!

    1. This one I really tried to pay attention to setting the stroke down then not to touching it. This is the only one I didn't rework after class! So I was happy with the results. Thanks for being so kind Chris!!!
