The Weekly BobBlast #176
"Bob at the Art of the Carolinas."

(scroll down for more info and links)

Welcome Back to Another BobBlast!

This week's BobBlast was filmed on location at the Art of the Carolinas in Raleigh, North Carolina. Day 3 - my two workshops were Abstract Florals from Loose Colorful Splatters and Loose & Juicy Landscapes.

Setting up to teach a workshop at a convention venue is a little different from an art organization workshop. Because I taught 2 three hour classes, my job was to give my students some good tips that they can quickly and easily use, once they get back to their studios. 

Abstract Florals from Loose Colorful Splatters - My intent was to show negative shape painting and practice light source basics.

Loose & Juicy Landscapes - I wanted the students to take away 4 different compositions and play with different paint products.

I always like to include a basic table set-up too - with tips like this:
•Only put what you need on your painting table.
•If you are right-handed, put your paints, water etc. on the right side of the table!
•Keep your water bucket close - at arm's length.
•If you are standing, put a brick on the floor to put one foot on. This will help your back!

Now... let's get your hands in paint!

Thanks again for watching and telling your friends! All my BobBlasts are archived on my website and my YouTube Channel. We post new studio tips weekly that offer real content, substance and useful techniques that work for me. And they're free! We appreciate your interest, questions, comments and support!

Here's a quick reminder about some upcoming workshops and dates.
