I am taking a class from a favorite artist, Milwaukee's own Shelby Keefe, who is a very thoughtful and delightful instructor. Her technique is so different from what I know that I had a very slow start after her demo (which I loved). The original photo reference had a beautiful sailboat, which wasn't so beautiful after I painted it, so I eliminated it. I'm sure I will want to make some adjustments after fresh eyes have examined it.
We'll see what tomorrow brings.
