Although not finishing on the podium, I was very pleased to be accepted by both the North River Arts Annual Festival with "Duxbury Cove" and the South Shore Arts Festival with my entry, "Now where are the Boston Beanies?

In addition, my figure study of "Colorful Sam" 30" x 42" (see below in the portraits class annoucement) was highlightedd at the the North Rivers Arts annual figure show... Time for a rest!

Portrait Figure Workshop

I also host every second wednesday evening of the month a workshop at the Ellis House with the Scituate Arts Association, a clothed portrait figure workshop (and occasionally, unclothed studies).

With no instruction, this is a great opportunity to just come paint and draw from a model.. Most sessions are one pose, for three hours. But within that same time period we have held three-one hour sessions as well.   

The ellis house is at 709 Country Way, Scituate MA. Costs are $15 scituate Members, $20 non-members.

I email paticipants of oncoming sessions (the second Wednesday.) Contact me through my e mail bob@beaulieudesign.com to be placed on a notificationlist,or any further questions or inquiries.

Come Paint With Me

The first was instruction and explanation of the Second Wednesday Portrait Workshop that I host. An interesting view, not only was my work recorded, but Vcevy Stakovlovsky and Scott Ketchum were also featured. It makes for an interesting watch to see how three artist approach their work and create their own separate interpretation working form the same source, the model.

The second video I am producing a still life form the Ellis studio location. I instruct on a step by step procedure to arrive at my concluded piece. to include a mistake and cover up about half way through. the composition had a flaw in it, and the video shows how I easily corrected it! this can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWVlpFunfHk v=a9u3VL3Ddz.
