2013 Summer stage (workshop) impressions

The ubiquitous pear (apparently galleries are packed with 'em.)
After morning exercises executing The Wash, watermelons are the order of the afternoon.
Radishes make good subjects to practice skinny tails using drawing gum, and kitchen wrap textured leaves.
Helena sits down to a well earned lunch.
Everyone is famished after the morning's exercises so a good lunch is essential.
If students tighten up too much on our "Morandi day",  I make them close their eyes while I set up some objects. They then have three minutes to paint. Nothing like a little time pressure to get the creative juices flowing fast.
