Co-op Time!!

This summer is my Co-op semester for school. I am doing a placement with an old teacher of mine, Katherine MacDonald, who is such an incredible painter. There are three other students along with me and we pretty much get to paint, 8 hours-a-day, 4 days-a-week. It is such an amazing opportunity to learn. I am so excited to be painting more than just the typical 3 hours a week.

I am also learning how to oil paint. We have been there for a week and a half so far and I am already learning a lot, especially about oil painting.

Here are some things I have been working on.

These are from the two days a week that we are at the Dundas Valley School of Art with Katherine:

looking good emily! after uploading photos of paintings i find it very useful to put auto levels on or adjust them manually. it just give the original more justice
