Still Life for the Adventurous - a workshop

The last two weekends have been full on drawing and painting with the well known tutor Michael Winters.  We worked as usual in the semi rural environment of Strathnairn on the edge of Canberra.  We were working with three different still life setups and looking at images and books by the three artists - David Hockney, Piet Mondrian and Patrick Caulfield.  Their styles were very different and all varied over time as well.  So it was really hard getting one's head around the differences to make drawings and paintings.  I still have one to complete.  Here are some of my works and studio views.
