Ken Hosmer Workshop

I just returned from a workshop in Corpus Christi, Texas with Ken Hosmer. Ken is known as a "colorist", and he taught a great deal about how to approach color logically, but his workshop covered many more topics than that. I found his "pathways" approach to value design particularly interesting, and his technique of painting from dark to light, opposite the "normal" watercolor process, was well worth trying. Ken dealt a lot with how light affects both value and color, and how to capture these effects in our paintings. Overall, the workshop was very interesting and valuable for me. I've included an image of Ken doing one of his demo paintings.
