SEEING & PAINTING VALUES – Here you will learn to simplify complex patterns of light, middle and dark values into connected monochromatic value patterns, then move to painting these values in color. You will experience a freedom when understanding how this concept works, and your paintings will be gain a dynamic, unified quality as a result.
STRENTHEN YOUR COMPOSITION & DESIGN – In this workshop we will ask “what if” questions regarding our subject ideas, previously painted works, and possibilities for making a mundane subject powerfully striking. Besides grasping the concepts of composition and design through demonstrations, you will gain a sense of confidence and freedom as you expand the possibilities of what can be done to strengthen your work. Participants are encouraged to bring paintings and drawings that you are not satisfied with.
PAINTING 2-AGAINST-1 VALUE PATTERNS
Building on the foundations of the Seeing & Painting Values workshop, you will take a leap forward as you see and experience how to identify the subject or focal area, then paint two values within that area while maintaining a third value in the non-focal area. This can create interesting, powerful, and surprising conceptual results that will open up new doors, even for the most experienced painters. We will explore a minimum of nine (9) possibilities for every composition, as opposed to feeling constricted to simply “painting what’s there.”
PAINTING DRAMATIC, EMOTIONAL SKIES
Just as the title of this workshop describes, we will paint emotionally powerful skies with various lighting and weather circumstances, as well as times of the day — in dramatic fashion. You will learn how to use your skies as the subject and focal point of your paintings in this workshop.
