Day 3 of Qiang Huang Workshop
I stopped in again on the final day of Qiang Huang's Oil Painting Workshop at the Artist's Guild in Melbourne. This time many of the paintings had already been put away and others were still in progress. (The photo above is a still life set up to paint.) Qiang was giving a presentation on using various tools like Gimp (free) and Photoshop (very expensive) for preparing photos of your artwork and on how to use the internet for marketing. I heard lots of comments about what a great class it was and what a wonderfully patient and brilliant teacher Qiang is. Hope he's back again next year. If he is, we're sure to announce it on this site so stay tuned. Following are a few photos I managed to take.
