With only a week and a half left of summer vacation, this week was declared “Art Camp” in the studio and today was Day 1. We started off the morning with the Woog visiting my oil painting class. I painted while she sketched and looked at the techniques of the other women in the class. I even let her paint a little on my painting. We then came back to the studio and watched (pretty much in fast forward) a video of the biography of Pablo Picasso. We then started with the art!
First was oil painting of the Woog’s red cowboy boot (still in progress):
We had to “erase” her’s a couple of times until she got the hang of it. Ocee slept during this part of camp. probably better that way. I don’t think a 6 month old oil painting would have been a good idea.
Then when we couldn’t do anymore to our pieces until they dried some, sowe moved onto oil pastels:
Ocee join in after his nap. He took to the oil pastels fairly well by stabbing the paper with them
Tomorrow we have another full day of it so stay tuned!
