Today was the first day of the Dan Dos Santos workshop.
What an info and action packed day it was!
There were presentations and lecturing -
(see us listening attentively!)
We had our sketches expertly critiqued -
- and improved (Dan is so very good at this).
Dan gave us an overview on reference shooting - and we shot our improvements. With awesome lighting.
We got to watch painting demos -
- got more talking to. I'm always amazed at how much more there is to learn.
Demos on laying in underpaintings...
Instruction on transferring our sketches to our pre-gessoed boards.
Drawing late into the night.....
Got my sketch pretty much transferred. Waiting for the start of painting tomorrow...
