In the Studio with Edward Minoff

   GCA students and alumni visiting Edward Minoff's studio in late September 2011

Edward Minoff talking about a painting in progress.  You can see the small plein air study he is using for the studio painting on the easel behind his shoulder

Edward (aka Ted) Minoff's studio is crammed with beautiful landscapes, portraits, figure, and still life studies.

Here he is showing us a small plein air sunset sketch he did on a trip to Italy.  In this photo you can see the larger canvas with a loose sketch of the scene he plans to paint using the plein air sketch for color reference. 

an important part of Ted's working process are the written notes and sketches he does on the beach while observing waves.  You can read more about this in detail on his website

Edward Minoff's painting in progress as of October 27, 2011
The most important part of the process - being inspired by nature and getting the information down in a study painted from life!
