Jim Lamb Demo at Daniel Smith Seattle

Starting at 11AM Jim Lamb was demonstrating his painting process just like he would do at any workshops. First 30 min was Q&A about his setting, material, plein air environment, and so on then actual painting session was about 1.5 h, which is very typical for his demonstration for the size of 8 x 10 or similar. Last time I took his workshop was more than a year ago, I believe. But I still remember what he repeatedly said. After that, I took two Tim Deibler's workshops over last 10 months or so.
Jim's distinctive style is characterized by the simple palette, relatively thin layers almost until the last stage, and the funny brushes he prefers. Then of course his way of pushing dark until the end, which create very atmospheric paintings like John McCormick's in SFO.
