David & Pam Lussier conducted a terrific workshop for 10 of our members the weekend of January 8-9. Their theme was how to paint from a photo while incorporating the visual aspects that photos tend to distort. In other words, how to make your paintings come to life. All ten participants found the workshop to be very helpful; and many commented that they were learning new techniques for the first time -- and in the process, they managed to produce some wonderful paintings. Thanks to Tony Donovan and Paula DePierro for helping make this workshop a reality.
