Carol Marine Class Day 1 Exercise 1

"Off The Rim"
6"x6" oil on canvas panel

At last, our long awaited Carol Marine Workshop in Maine is here! We have 15 students in South Freeport and everyone is having a great time. I am learning so much, even more than the first time I took Carol's workshop, in March of 2009. Maybe it's the 150 paintings that have come in between, do you think? For our first task, after a wonderful initial demo by Carol, she asked us to choose some objects and do a "get to know you painting". I chose a couple of oranges (forgetting how hard those are, with no structure to them) and my favorite red bowl. A tip from Carol's demo was to choose a background color that is the compliment of the object. Carol showed me how to do the highlights on the bowl.


  1. Oh Bobbi! You lucky girl. Can hardly wait to hear about the rest of the workshop and see what you produce!

  2. Oops, I forgot to say that this is a beauty and yes, I think it's all the ones in between that make the difference.
