"Fair Friends" oil 8 x 8
Every year, I do a painting demo at the Marshfield Fair. You can find me on the first Sunday hanging out upstairs in the main building. The juxtaposition of inside and outside is always intriguing for me. I chat away with children and adults. The room is visually stimulating with beautiful quilts hanging from the rafters and a wide variety of handmade arts and crafts entered by the public. Check the Fair website for entry categories and dates in the exhibitor handbook each year.
To the left, you can see how I blocked in this painting, with one dark and warm shape for the inside, and a cool yellow light shape for the outside space, along with the indication of some people in the doorway. I may get back there this week for another painting day.. hope so.
