Last friday I finished the weeklong portrait painting workshop instructed by Leonid Gervits. The class was from 9:30-4:30 m-f at The Gage Academy, a wonderful school in Seattle. It was a little early for my vampire lifestyle, but it was more than worth it. It is always a joy to watch a master painter at work. His demos were inspiring and his instruction was invaluable. It really gave me the shot in the arm I needed before I start on my next painting series.
