|"Still Life" - Pastel - 5x6 - June 2014 - Jaenickie Workshop|
Memory Painting Exercise - Took a workshop from Barbara Jaenicke this week and she had us do a memory painting exercise to improve our observation skills. She set up a still life and we were given 5 minutes to study it. Then we went in another room and were to paint from memory. We did this several times back and forth. It was a difficult exercise but fun. We frequently are glued to our reference photo and don't just simply look at our painting and figure out what's wrong. My next still life project is to get sunflowers and my watering can and make a still life arrangement to paint.
