Webcast Recap

 


Yesterday I did my first Webcast studio tour and demo, this is me standing in front of the camera, ready for my close-up!
UPDATE: Watch the Webcast again!
The webcast was recorded, so you can still click here to register and watch the whole thing, including a drawing demo, a color-mixing demo, and lots of great questions and answers.

The webcast went great and I really enjoyed myself. We had visitors from around the world, including as far away as Finland and Australia. The audience asked really good questions and kept me talking. I felt like I just skimmed over so many great topics, so I'm hoping to do a whole day-long workshop webcast in the future.
 
 
Here is my handsome camera guy, my husband Nowell, who turned a corner of my studio into a professional broadcasting suite for the day, complete with mixing board and a backup boom mic mounted on the camera, just in case my fancy rented wireless lapel mic didn't work (it worked great, though!).
A closer look at the sound and video setup. We had a brief moment of freeze-screen, but other than that we sailed through without any major technical hiccups. Phew!
My studio looked so spiffy I had to take some photos.
Above is my little still life painting corner where I spend most my time.

 

 


Webcast viewers got a look at my most recent painting which will be shipped to Arcadia Gallery in New York for the Sept 23 Small Works show.

 

We talked about what paints, panels, and brushes I use, and I did a little demo showing how I mix up cool and warm strings of neutral colors on my palette.

My still life shelf is at the left, my model stand is in the middle. To the right I have screens arranged as a changing room for my models.
Lady Victoire is looking happy.
The studio doors and a couple recent paintings on easels.
Thanks everyone who was able to register and attend, it was a huge success and I look forward to doing it again!

Hi Sadie: My son, Adam, introduced me to your blog just in time to view your wonderful studio and to congratulate you on having that beautiful painting selected for the Arcadia exhibit. I'll be back to enjoy a "private" viewing of more of your work online.

Best,
Bonnie

Hi Sadie - I was away last weekend so couldn't watch your webcast in real time, but saw the recording of it and found it so interesting. I particularly liked your explanation of the way you deal with "edges", which made more sense to me than anything I have ever read or heard. Thanks. I am sorry I won't be in NYC for the Arcadia show - heading back to France tomorrow. But break a leg!

Hi Bonnie, thank you so much!

Hi Sarah! Wow I'm glad you got something from my little spiel about edges... I had to rush through it so fast I'm amazed anyone could understand what I was saying! Glad it was helpful, Michael Grimaldi taught me that and it was a revelation to me, too. So sorry I won't get to see you in NY, but have fun in France!
