"Spring in the woods"

 

Painting green is a challenge. I picked a photo that show all kinds of greens: the house with a green roof, The trees with fresh green leaves in the spring time, and the green grass in shadow and in light. I have spent two days on this small painting. It feels my handling of green colors has got more sensitive. All the efforts during the pandemic isolation have shown some effects. I am enchanted.

One Day Zoom Workshop in May

 


From my limited experiences of organizing Zoom workshops, I have learned that the demand of online art learning is much larger than I thought. The two workshops I have organized so far got full way to quickly, and many friends did not get a chance. In order to give the opportunity for many more people to access my painting approaches, I decided to teach a one-day Zoom workshop and allow up to 100 people to get in. So you can have an overview of my painting process. Different from my regular workshops, I may not be able to provide individual guidance this time. However you may view how I paint and have a video to review at your convenience. The information and registration of this workshop are at: http://www.qh-art.com/zoom-workshop-one-day.html. If you are interested in my teaching, I do recommend you to sign up as early as possible. It may get full quickly as well.  Good luck my friends.

Workshop in Tuscany Italy

It has been too long. We all look forward the Covid 19 pandemic coming to the end, and we can travel and enjoy the activities we used to have. I have planned to teach a plein air painting workshop in Tuscany, Italy this October. Can you imagine the wonderful days of relaxing in the beautiful Italian wine country and learn a few tips of oil painting? Please check: https://www.artescapeitaly.com/qianghuang for detailed information. So far we still have a few openings. I am looking forward to seeing you this fall in the beautiful Tuscany.
