I had a great time teaching my still life workshop at the Sadie Valeri Atelier earlier this month. For those not in the know, SVA is a privately run school in San Francisco that teaches a rigorous drawing and oil painting program. Here are some photos from the workshop.
Me demoing on a still life painting of a doll passed out with a bottle. My second drunk doll painting in four months. That doll, by the way, is really old, but doesn't it look like something some Etsy hipster would make out of recycled organic cotton rags? It's kind of perfect.
Dave tagged along for the trip to San Francisco. He painted a little still life and tattooed Sadie's husband Nowell with an awesome octopus. Below, some of the still life paintings from the workshop:

Sa-weeet. If I lived in San Francisco I would definitely be taking some workshops there myself. There is a figure workshop in June run by Carl Dobsky and if plane tickets grew on trees, I'd be there.
