Laurie McGaw’s 2011 Annual Portrait Painting Workshop was held on a grey weekend in May one of the studios at the Guelph School of Music.  Several regulars from years gone by and a few new faces were in attendance.  Laurie did a demo on the Friday evening before the workshop that drew in some familiar faces from Elora.  I was able to make good start on my painting “Jewels Reclining” in the 2-days of the workshop and finished in my studio.  Laurie’s husband Ross Phillips made us a terrific dinner at the Phillips/McGaw home and we all had a chance to relax a bit.  We had a good group, good time, a great model, and did some good work.

That's Jewels our lovely model 2nd from the left in the back row. Lauie took this shot.
