Join us at the RISD Museum tonight! I'll be leading Hands-on-Art: A Mad Tea Party from 5-8:30PM in Danforth Hall (on the 3rd floor, near the bridge to the Chase Center, off of the 20th century galleries).
6"x6", oil on canvas. A neutral study demo for oil painting class. We set us a simple white cup (no handle, straight sides) with a single light source, neutral grey table top and gentle blue backdrop. Our palette consisted of yellow ochre, cad red, ultramarine blue and titanium white.
20"x16", oil on panel. A quick (though large) sketch from our visit to the palazetto Cenci in Rome, home of the RISD program there. That's the director Ezio Genovesi talking things over in one of the studios with my husband, who knew him there many years ago.
