Her Mother's Locket
"We spent a full week in Dan Gerhartzs studio filming the entire painting process of this beautiful work. Painted for gallery sale, the painting recently sold to a private collector. This is not the typical demonstration painting seen in workshops. It was painted over a period of four days, and Dan spares nothing in his commentary to explain the reasons he paints in the manner he does. Dan receives countless invitations to teach workshops around the country, but his gallery and show obligations prevent him from scheduling more than one or two per year. To be able to reach the painters who want to study with him, but cant, he filmed these videos in answer to that need. A warm and giving instructor, he offers more than a workshop in this program, where he is able to paint at his own pace in the familiar surroundings of his spacious studio and local models. If you have ever wanted to look over the shoulder of a master painter and see the model he is painting, this is the video that will allow you to experience that desire. Take a visual tour of his studio and the environment in which he paints, and you will feel as if you are there during the entire creative process."
