Bernie starts out with a white sheet of paper, as we all do.

Laying in

Here he has started by laying in the big areas of color such as the sky and the water.
Bernie uses vibrant colors in his paintings.


At the break people came up to get a closer look.
At this point the painting is well established.

Almost done

Almost done. Just a few more details.


Putting a mat around the painting gives us an idea
of what it will look like when it is framed.


Time to party!

Not quite done

... well even when its "done", there is always a detail that can be improved.
Thanks, Bernie for a great demo!
