MARY GARRISH DAY THREE

Mary with students at lunch.



DAY 3: 
     Once again we met at the marina to paint during the best light of the day. Mary made sure to mentor each of the students with their paintings. 
      After lunch we went back to the classroom for a wrap up demonstration reviewing the concepts she taught.

Mary had a cool method to make sure we only use no more than five shapes in a painting. Take a photo of a scene you want to paint, outline 3-5 shapes with a Sharpie. Maybe even cut out the shapes to check on your design. 

Topping off the workshop Mary demonstrated painting ocean waves plus completed the following sky/ water scene. 

I never would have thought of yellow water but it reads well when all is said and done.
