Bo Bartlett – Day 4

I’m back home after the Bo Bartlett workshop in Columbus, GA. I had so much swirling around in my head so I look the day off to think about my experience.

The last day we applied color over our grisaille.  Here is the head shot of the figure painting I was working on.  I didn’t complete it so I can see the entire process from the uncolored areas.  A really great exercise for me.

Here is Bo’s painting-
Here is Bo’s palette-
Alizarin Crimson, Burnt Sienna, Cad Red Med, Cad orange, Cad Yellow Med, Yellow Ochre, Raw Sienna, Cad Green, Raw Umber, Cobalt Blue, Ultramarine Blue and Cobalt Violet

In addition to working on our paintings we went for a walk to see the third venue of work that downtown Columbus was exhibiting their native son’s work. This venue had paintings, journals and sketches along with other pieces of memorabilia.  The three places exhibiting Bo’s work will be up for a few weeks so if you are anywhere near Columbus, GA I suggest you visit!

In addition to great technical painting and drawing direction Bo offered amy inspiring life lessons to apply to both our art and our lives.

Happy Drawing & Painting!
