Art Talk • Demo at Roger's Gardens


Robin Hall   •   oil   10x16


Clark Mitchell   •   pastel  8x18


Thank you all who came to listen and watch Clark Mitchell and myself do a demo and art talk at Roger's Gardens, in Corona del Mar, yesterday.  A little more of a talk than a demo, but I loved the 2 artist presentation of us each using a different medium (Mitchell in soft pastel and I painted in oil) yet, working from the same image.   These are our 1-hour paintings.  It's always so interesting how artists interpret the same scene.

I am very appreciative to those that trekked a long distance to watch us, especially the couple that drove a total of 268 miles.  That's dedication!

It is my hope everyone went away with some added knowledge and a little inspiration to pull the brushes out and go for it.   In addition I want to thank Theresa Marino and Roger's Gardens for hosting the event and Rolf's Wine  http://rolfswine.com/ for serving such a delicious selection of wine.

Please send me an email if you wish to be put on my email blast for workshop and class notices.

Painting Demonstration @ Roger's Gardens



Art Discussion & Demonstration at Roger's Gardens


TWO ARTISTS, TWO MEDIUMS, TWO MINDS, MANY INFLUENCES, ONE OBJECTIVE

On Saturday May 26 from 3-4:30pm in the Amphitheater at Roger's Gardens, Robin Hall will be painting in oil and Clark Mitchell will be working in Pastel; each tackling the same image, each with a different approach and each sharing their process as they approach the same goal of creating a work of art.
Following the demonstration there will be an Artist Reception and Wine Tasting.
Hope to see you there.
