Kim English! Wow! We did oodles of 5-minute studies of the models, painting the gestures in oil, trying with each effort to get a little more of the painting in the landscape. Kim is the master of this beautiful painting style with lots of light in each of his paintings. It was a thoroughly invigorating class. Moss does not grow on a rolling stone, as they say...
The upper photo shows Kim with his 5-minute study. Is he kidding? The lower studies are a few of my 5-minute paintings. Kim's reputation had preceded him. He is a terrific teacher, tough taskmaster, relentless supporter of painters. He seems to want all to succeed and grow and learn.
