Day 2 of the Carla O'Connor Workshop

Carla giving a demo
Phase 1 of Girl with a Fan  This one was done in about 15 minutes.  We would work with one drawing or painting tool for a minute or less an then Carla would say switch.  This one is on newsprint.

Phase 2 of Girl with a Fan.  This one, on wc paper, was done the same way, switching every minute or so.  This time we could add one color to our painting.  I think this one can be made into something with a lot more work.  

Phase 3 of Girl with a Fan.  This was done at a more leisurely pace.  Right now I have things "blocked in".  Tomorrow, I will add interesting designs and textures to the background.
