He was amenable to that, and luckily, my call caught him before he'd laid-out the colors for the still life he'd planned for today. The subject was to be a mango to continue working on improving color temperature and value identification and organization. We'll save that for next week.
He could find his way to our building without a problem, but I love seeing the work in his studio, so I went over there. Soon, we were back here and he was answering my many questions and making suggestions about how to make those three paintings better.
The time flew by, especially when he agreed to my invitation to correct the Kaneohe golf course painting on the canvas. I was seated nearby, intensely watching him mix colors and make corrections. As he worked, he kept a running explanation of exactly what he was doing and why. As always, everything he said made perfect sense and seeing him put the words into corrections was a fantastic experience. I know this will sound a little dramatic, but it was like watching a miracle happen. Here's a link to a YouTube video capturing nearly three minutes of our session today. I would've gotten more, but I was too busy concentrating on watching and learning.
No photos, but we also discussed the Doc's Dad's portrait. I've had some doubts about it for the past week or two and asked William for his opinion of what was bothering me about it, and also my plan to fix it. His advice will enable me to proceed with a bit of confidence.
Have a nice Sunday!
