The same mountain view from Canmore painted in 2 different mediums

I used the same photo to do both workshops I have not completed either of them but here they are.

Workshop with Doug Swinton

This weekend I attended another workshop. This one was oils with Doug Swinton. I like his strategy - SIMPLIFY. By painting with the biggest brush you have and by finding the correct value the colour is yours to see. I probably will not use this approach to many of my paintings but I do enjoy watching him as he pounds out a big 24 X 30 painting in 45 minutes. I realize I like to watch others paint as much as I like painting!
Here are pictures from the workshop.

Art Workshop in Cochrane, Alberta

Well I attended the workshop with Marilyn Kinsella Watercolourist She sure has become proficient with her skills. I must say I was impressed with the way she moved the colour onto the paper and could delicately conjure up the rocky mountains with out even using a photo. She said - I have painted them thousands of times from every angle. And she was so very good. Here is a simple painting I worked on.

Artists view of the hoar frost on a tree

This is part of my fair weather series. I thought I would post a cold tree as this is how it is feeling out there at this time of the year. It is a 12 X 12 painting so part of the left side is missing in the view.
