I promised I'd post some of the paintings I made during Albert Handell's mentoring workshop last week. I averaged one or two a day, depending on time and energy level. I made a special attempt to put into practice some of the things he suggested and demonstrated to me during the week. As he made his rounds to students, he always took the time to make personal suggestions, which I found very helpful. In all but one of my paintings, Albert added a stroke or two - a darker accent, a lighter accent, richer paint, or thicker paint.
Without further ado, here they are.
