|Still Life Final|
Worked on the final piece for the last two days of the workshop. It was interesting to try some new approaches and push the image as far as possible. It was the first time I used black on the palette. I used the smallest brushes I think I have ever used. Used the most number of paints on a palette ever. Lots of stuff I had taken on board as hard and fast rules to work by are not.
I think everyone learned a lot and pushed their work to the next level with Matts guidance.
Hope there is another workshop next year.

|Colour Study -Demonstration|
On day 3 we got onto a colour study. Matt did a demonstration of colour for the group. I was fortunate that he did the demo using the set up I was painting. It was great to have an opportunity to watch someone very skilled go through this process and be able ask questions. This is Matts study finished. This he referred to as a poster study. Trying to the colours right without fussing over detail.

The photo below is a shot of one of the Harland and Wolff cargo cranes I took from my hotel room one morning. There are two, Samson and Goliath. Shipyard is most famous for building the Titanic.
The second photo is of the black taxi terminal in town with some eye catching murals.
