I am thrilled to have my mentor, Richard Palomino (or Lilla Duva, his "pen" name) come over from France to hold a workshop in Kingsport July 22nd-25th. He is self-taught in the Old Master technique of layering with his own handmade mediums and hand ground paints. He will begin with a value drawing (here is one he has done of me) in charcoal and white and create the painting based on that. He only works from life and is really a treasure trove of lessons, most of which he learned on his own through trial and error. There are still a couple of spots left!
