Recently, I was privileged to attend the workshop held by award winning artist Derek Penix. These photos were taken by another artist friend who attended and shared them with me, so now I want to share them with you. The process he goes thru to create a painting is so unique and interesting. Derek thinks of everything he sees as abstract shapes that come together in harmony. He does not worry so much about color, chroma or values as they just "happen" for him. Watching him is like watching an orchestra conductor swing his baton in bold strokes and wide gashes. He truly proves that art is work and for me I felt tired from just watching. Hope you all enjoy.
