Painting a Great White Egret

'Pawleys Egret'        6x8       pastel      ©Karen Margulis SOLD

I just returned from a wonderful week on Pawleys Island.  I did 29 paintings and took over 1000 photos. I am filled with inspiration and I can't wait to sort through my photos and reflect on all of the beautiful things I experienced this week.   But that reflection may just have to wait another week.  I have one day to do my laundry and repack my painting gear for a 3 day workshop with Marc Hanson.

The workshop is in the Atlanta area but I have decided to stay an a hotel closer to the painting locations  along with two of my artist friends Marsha Savage and Candy Day. I know how tiring a workshop can be and I just don't want to have to fight the Atlanta traffic. It is more fun to be immersed in the workshop experience and not have to come home every night and change gears.

My plan is to post reports each evening about the workshop so please visit my blog this week for my report.  I will also work on putting together an album and a full report of my week on Pawleys Island.

This is one of the paintings I did while at the beach house. It was cold and rainy one day so I painted two egret paintings from photos I took the day before. This is a 6x8 pastel on Canson paper.
