Workshop Coming Up!

My Mendocino Gouache & Watercolor workshop is just around the corner. Please sign up soon: it's the weekend of September 17-18, 2011. Besides demonstrating my painting approach and how to tackle the local coastline and other landscape features, I will also be able to look at portfolios and give feedback on all aspects of your work.

Workshop Info

I also wanted to share that there are special discounts at local inns- just ask the Mendocino Art Center: 1-800-653-3328 ext. 10

*The sepia image is a recent digital painting exploring an invented Italian harbor, in the spirit of the Dutch Italianates.

Great "digital invention". Did you plan the use of the diagonal (from top left to bottom right) to divide the ground and the sky?
Anyway, great ambiance, i often go to the Louvre and your piece could easily fit also in the french the paysages (Vernet, le lorrain etc..).
Congratulations !

Hi Erik, I have signed up for your workshop. I heard about you from John Clapp at SJSU several years ago and have been following your blog ever since. I am looking forward to meeting you!

Hi Thomas and Finnian.

Thanks for signing up for the workshop Finnian! It should be a blast and it is well worth the journey as the coast of Mendocino is unique and very inspiring. I will be happy to go over any questions you have about technique and approaches to painting with you. John Clapp and I went to Art Center a while ago, fantastic figure drawings he creates.

Thomas,

Thank you so much for the feedback, and wow you are lucky one to live near the Louvre, I have museum envy! Your work by the way is excellent in the references you make to the past, I will follow your future creations.

-Erik
