Hi everyone, it’s been a while I know. Busy, busy.
I did this quick little oil sketch last week before the clementines leave the shops and the baubles go back in the attic. I’ve been doing a few new Christmas card images for next year – how organised is that?!
I also wanted to tell you about the workshop I’m running in April. It’s a three-day boot camp where we really get to grips with oil painting/still life. Do email me back if you’d like more information or go to my website https://pennygerman.com/workshops/. There are only a few places left so don’t delay. If you’d like a slightly more advanced workshop, I’ll be running ‘Loosen up in oils – still life’ as a one-day workshop in June – just waiting for the date to be agreed. This is for people who already paint but find their work tightening up too much – something I struggled with for a long time. If that’s not enough for you, there’s my week-long painting holiday on the Canal du Midi in the south of France in September where we’ll be painting en plein air with a little still life thrown in if there’s inclement weather at all. Do let me know if you’d like more information.
