GAY FAULKENBERRY DEMO
I am still trying to recover from the most exhausting three day workshop I have ever encountered. All that thinking and trying to unlearn everything I know about painting only to relearn it in the manner that Gay paints! Wow, I still feel like a bus hit me! Could there be an artist out there that was more opposite of me than Gay? I think not. New pallet to learn, puzzle painting when I block in big and paint in layers, all those beautiful greys when we all know I thrive on color. And of course the biggy, plein air instead of being safe and sound in my studio, painting off my computer monitor. Makes me break out in a cold sweat again, just to think about it. Actually, I really enjoyed the experience and Gay is a fantastic artist and person. I would recommend this workshop to all.
