here are 2 of the demos Carol Marine did at the workshop - so great to get back to basics and be a student again - for 3 days straight. Carol - is a terrific instructor - wise beyond her years! Great bunch of artists in the group too!! I will post links to some of them soon.

Below are some of my boards - some of them are 10 min studies.. I'm super comfortable painting my way around the human form but put an apple in front of me!! eeeek - scary!!
Soooo they were my focus during this workshop - .... Carol is THE Queen of painting apples so thought I'ld learn from the best
