Friday was our wrap-up day in class. We finished paintings, had a critique, and got our paintings ready for gallery night. Judy also gave us a list of when to stop working on our paintings which included reaching for your smallest brush or when nothing is abrasive.
I finished my Chinese lantern painting. As you can see it is a bit different from the original look it had. I darkened the awning above the lanterns. It was too distracting as a light color. I did some wiping out with a stencil in the window areas of the building and I used transition lines around all the lanterns.
I was really happy with the way this one came out.
In the evening on Friday we had gallery night. All the artwork was hung on the walls on the third floor of the conference center and we had appetizers and cocktails while we walked around looking at all the paintings.
Here are some photos from gallery night.

Each person in the class did a beach painting. Here are some photos of the collection which were hung together.
And a few close-ups.
Here is a photo of most of the group that made up our class.
That's Judy Morris in the front middle with the glasses.
It was definitely a great workshop and I would highly recommend taking a class with her.
