John Lovett workshop Day Two

The temperatures in the north woods have taken a decidedly Florida-like turn! Wow, be careful what you wish for!

It is 91 in Lac du Flambeau, WI AND it is 91 in Leesburg, FL.!!! We are in shock again. But never fear...the north woods will always pop back with surprises and we expect a high of only 57 by Saturday. A person does NOT know what to wear up here!!!

Anyway, at Dillman's we work in AC! So we are happily comfortable. This first painting is my first attempt at a dock scene ala John Lovett style. It is not done. John critiqued it and I need more masts in the sky. John's demo on this is the last of the 3 photos.

My other try was from my own photo reference and it's not done either. This reference is from my own photos of Cross Creek, FL the home of Marjorie Rawlings (author of the Yearling)

  1. I love these Ginny and I love his style. Oh - how I would love to be a little mouse in the studio to soak up all this instruction! I'll bet you are loving this workshop.
    91 degrees in the northwoods! In June? Wow! It was 96 here this afternoon in Ohio - That is also unusual for June!
