Art Deco Girl is a 20x16 oil by Shirley Fachilla
Never shorten a neck… reserve a brush or more for your darks (misplaced white can destroy one’s values)… watch your angles.
Great things to know, but not the most important lessons I took away from Carolyn’s workshop.
For me, the lessons that resonated were:
Light and shadow define our visual reality. Light flows like a river and is the great unifier. Painting isn’t filling in the spaces. There should be a meaning behind each brushstroke.
The important lessons I only partially understand. I guess I’ll be trying to implement them from now on in every painting I do.
Art Deco Girl was painted on the second day of the workshop.
