Tom Hoffmann workshop – arches and Jacarandas

day2archOn the third day of Tom Hoffmann‘s workshop, we rented a van and headed out to Cuilapam. This is an abandoned monastery, which is now an archaeology site. It was an impressive place, with lots of columns, arches and jacaranda trees covered with lavender flowers.
I did painting after painting of arches. Tom told us to simplify, which is hard to do, but I did, but even the arches had arches in them! The scene was amazingly complex. Slowly we learned to think in bigger chunks and shapes.
