Thanks to everyone attending this last weekend's workshop at Kevin Chen's Concept Design Academy in Pasadena, California. What a wonderful group of students and Kevin and his wife Estelle were terrific hosts. I enjoyed the Eaton Canyon location on Sunday's portion of the landscape painting/sketching workshop. Springtime near the base of the mountains provided us with babbling streams and shimmering leaves of sycamore to inspire us in our artwork. I will post some demos and quick sketches from the class soon. Here is the full picture of the painting I promised last week. This was also part of my slide lecture on the process of starting and completing a painting in gouache and watercolor. Later in the week I will show a collection of in-progress stills on this painting.

I keep running back to look at this over and over again. I love it so much! Thanks for posting the full image - can't wait to see the WIP stills!

So much detail, wonderful depth.
Looking forward to the WIP.
Are you going to release more Gnomon DVD's or has that been delayed?

Thank you so much Erik for such a fantastic workshop! I left so inspired and ready to dive into some major painting. I was up in SF today and the sky was incredible! I got to do more studies. I'm definitely going to work at it as much as possible. Thank you for taking your time to give us all feedback. Your passion and hunger for painting is so admirable. I look forward to some future workshops.
Best Regards, Lidia
