Still Life with Scallions

Still Life with Scallions, 6 x 8

I am just back from a three-day still life workshop with Carol Marine at Andreeva Academy in Salado, which I learned about from Julie Davis. Carol is terrific, both in painting and in teaching, and packs an enormous amount of both into a relatively short time. The group of attendees was tremendous and I made many friends whom I look forward to keeping in contact with. The still life above was one I completed during the workshop.

I was privileged enough to watch this painting unfold on the canvas. Superb job, Stephen. The color balance and composition are right on!
