Still life oil painting flowers kirkeeide

This past weekend was spent up at artist Kristin Grevich's cabin in Grand Rapids, MN. We braved the sub zero temps to watch a horse and sleigh show at the fairgrounds. Luckily we were able to park our car by the grounds where it was held - so we were able to jump in and out to take pictures.
We spent the rest of the day in the warmth of the cabin setting up this still life and painting. I think it took almost as long to set up and light our subject as it did to paint it. What a great time. It's always so nice to paint with another artist to bounce ideas back and forth and give each other feedback. Certainly something that I would like to do more often. You learn so much by seeing it from another perspective.
