Sergei Bongart Article

STILL LIFE PAINTING is an important part in my workshops.I did this still life demo yesterday to start  my Amarillo workshop.I still have in my ear,what my former teacher Sergei Bongart said:"If you can paint still life's,than you can paint everything." It's just a good way for the students to jump right away into the colors.Starting a workshop with landscape painting,can be more discouraging ,because in a landscape the colors are not always bright right in front of your nose,so you need to be more courageous to exaggerate and stressing your phantasies. But if you come home first day with a colorful painting,that gives you selfconfidence to attack the landscape the next day with a little bit more zest.

Artist Doug Carter,. MOONLIGHT 5 X 7.Oil Painting,.
This subject of the moon seems to be quite interesting. On the night of the Blood moon there was overcast in Texas . I was wanting to catch a view of it , they say it won't happen again till 2033. So here is a view the next night with a clear sky. I will say it is a super sized moon for sure. What do you think await your comments . Thanks for checking out my Blog.
