Doug Dawson Advanced Workshop – Interim Report


If you've been following my blog, you'll know that this is Doug Dawson week. Doug and Sue have come all the way from Denver to lead an advanced workshop in Downeast Maine. I believe this is his fifth time in the area teaching. It's always a pleasure to have this master painter here, as he is such a giving teacher.

So far, we've had two mornings of fog followed by sunnier afternoons. Doug loves the fog, since it simplifies shapes and leads to more abstract painting, and it also does interesting things to color. The sunny afternoons have been good, too, since that is weather more typical of the area in August. We're liking all of it, though! 

I'll post a more complete report after the week, but for now, here are some photos.
