Learning from the Artist
on Saturday Sept. 26th in Denmark with Jim Harrison.
by Carolyn Miller
The Second Workshop in Denmark, S.C. given by Mr. Harrison was attended by approximately a dozen artists including , Pat Marranci, Jane Popiel and Carolyn Miller of the Aiken Artist Guild. Mr. Harrison allowed pictures and no questions were off limits again as to technique or his history. The project chosen for this workshop was the Palmetto Trees and Marshes of S.C. with concentration on basic laying in of background colors and building up of foreground subjects and lighting. Particular attention was discussed regarding “values”. Mr. Harrison shared his palette, color mixing technique and application methods. “Never, ever paint what you don’t know or haven’t studied”, said Mr. Harrison. Go LOOK at your topic and paint from life where you can. Again, the “one hour” workshop turned into a lunch break at the Mennonite Bakery across the road followed by more demonstration and questions and answers until around 3:00. Light drinks and snacks were supplied by Mr. Harrison and the $50.00 fee gave all workshop members a credit back in the gallery towards prints…!!! We all got a sneak peek at Aiken 175th Anniversary print Jim will have for Aiken during our celebration. Pictures attached are of his workspace, the completed project and the two ladies, Lynn and Teri who run his gallery and keep him on track.
