Randy Sexton Workshop Day 2

Our class met at the Fish Creek Harbor for the second day. It was a lightly overcast, threatening rain most of the day. It was very windy by the lake. Randy painted a demo of a motorcycle that was parked on the road.

He masses in a large dark shape to start. He compares this to a portrait. This is just a portrait of a bike. 
At this point he does a lot of wiping out to get the correct shape and establish the lightest areas.

Love it!

  1. Great report, Cathy! I really like your painting. Sorry it's so hot there, but hope you avoided the pouring rain. You mentioned "Compose Blue" -- is that right? I haven't heard of it. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

  2. What a great demo! I find it interesting that he reveals the shapes by wiping away-like a sculptor. I am also interested in Compose Blue. Who makes it? Anxious to see your work!
