Murfreesboro Art League Oil Painting Class

Last night, members enjoyed an oil painting demonstration of a still life set up by Carol Berning and then painted their conception of the same still life. 

There were around twelve members who participated, even people who had previously no or little experience in oil painting!!!  Everyone had fun and enjoyed the class.

Next Monday, the class will continue painting the still life or they may choose to paint an apple - a study in values and light.  Hope to see everyone on the 20th of March at 7:00 pm at the gallery in the back of Cannonsburg.
