Schools Out for the Summer

I would like to introduce my friend and my teacher;
Karen Leffel Massengill

There were two other students but I did not get their photo before they were off for northern climes. Luckily I did get Tom's picture, he paints four times a week at different studios and classes. 

 Karen demoed how to do clouds and water to help Tom on this painting. Of course I learned too because I am not a strong landscape painter and I want to be.

Warm/ cool colors, variation, soft/ hard edges, color choice and blending plus knowing where to use it all.

So much to learn!
Tom's masterpiece.
