The Foxboro Art Association hosted a workshop with Deb Quinn-Munson Saturday, April 6, 2013 at Studio East, Walpole.
|Deb Quinn-Munson begins with an oil underpainting on |
Wallis (or UART -- can't remember which) paper
|Students in rapt attention|
Deb had many wonderful tidbits about painting water. She shared this quote by Don Demers, " Study the water until you understand what it looks like, then paint how it feels." I personally love stuff like this!
|Deb made two underpaintings, this photo shows watercolor on|
watercolor paper. Another was in oil on Wallis paper.
|Deb continues to develop her underpainting|
|Karole Nicholson came up to see the painting in progress and make inquiries|
We have so much to think of when making good paintings. Often this is done intuitively, but Deb's insight encourages artists to slow down and consider the options for deliberate choices -- a smart thing to do.
|The painting with the introduction of pastel shows lovely sparkle.|
|Deb, again with the group in rapt attention, shows the two paintings and discusses their attributes.|
One tidbit Deb shared has sat in my head as a good default for making these decisions:
What will make someone walk across a room to see the painting? Of course you should choose the options that would do that!
|Pastel painting by Deb Quinn-Munson -- what shimmer!|
|Deb offers instruction|
|Workshop attendees give each other guidance|

She encouraged us to be deliberate with our marks and to make bold, decisive paintings:
"You only get to hit it once -- maybe twice. That's it."
|Workshop in full swing with everyone painting!|
