This was the first painting I did at the Stanley Bielen workshop. Below you can see Stanley beginning the first of two demos he did during the week. Here he had quickly toned the canvas using Indian yellow mixed with a little black.
This was about halfway into the demo. After the toning, there was a quick underpainting. This was followed by the "loading the lights"; using generous amounts of paint to establish the light values.


  1. oh, I love the looseness in this painting, Susan... and the colors are fabulous. Thanks for sharing workshop details, those are always fascinating to me :)

  2. - I love this - I LOVE HIS work and I love yours too! love!

  3. I was just searching the web for work by Stanley Bielen and your Marigolds popped up...Beautiful!
