I am exhausted! Qiang did a great presentation about the composition, he used the paintings of David Laffel and Sherrie McGraw to explain how these masters convey the ideas to the audience, light direction, speed, rhythms, and subject matter,.... it was absolutely great. And his demo was wonderful too. Just like the rest of his paintings, the demo painting was simple, elegant, and distinctive.
But I didn't painted well, I felt like I was putting too much pressure on myself, plus the distractions on the scene (video taping, parking ticket, too many participants, setting up the still life, etc.). Tomorrow I'll have to focus on the painting and ignore the rest of the distraction.
