WEEK 1: Small Paintings
We will be worinking in the syle of the daily painters who paint small 6x6 or 6x8 still lives on Ampersand gessoboards. These paintings are perfect little gems that are completed in one night. Gessoboard panels will be provided by the instructor.
WEEK 2: We will explore negative space flower painting inspired by Linda Kemp. Students should bring a 16x20 stretched canvas or board.
Tuesdays February 12 & 19 Time: 6:30-9:30 Tuition: $90.
In this class we will be working from photo references, We will learn how to edit the photo and find the best composition, value plan and color harmony in order to achieve our desired results. Instead of just copying a photo we will be maximixing the drama and light within it.
Students should bring either a stretched canvas or a painting panel (no smaller than 9x12 or larger than 16x20) and paper towels. (I strongly recommend Viva).
Student grade paint in both oil and acrylic is provided along with brushes, palettes and easels. The instructor will provide reference photos but students are always welcome to bring their own.
