Bob's Painting Improv - Three Faces.
Welcome back to another BobBlast!
The following film was photographed at the end of the day - "after hours" during my recent Studio Mentor Workshop. Many of the students return at night and continue painting their work into late at night. You may even hear some of the chatter in the background.
In the 3-1/2 day Studio Mentor Workshop, everyone arrives with their own goals - their own projects... getting ready for an exhibit, starting new work, or just to loosen up an old body of work. I'm there to offer guidance.
After hours - this is my time to concentrate on my own exploration and improvisation. This painting video shows me pushing paint around. Portraits/Faces, are not usually a subject I'm comfortable with. So instead, my approach is to explore moments with colors and paint improv portraits... my way.
I thank Robin Walker for shooting this secretly behind me. Afterwards, it was weird watching myself go through and relive these "moments of exploration."
Thanks for watching me paint my first improv portraits. Now you won't feel so bad about your work when you try new directions. Got to start somewhere. I had fun with these - and I like them!
Here's a quick reminder about some upcoming workshops and dates. If interested, sign up now!
