Explore painting food and still life with exuberance and structure. We will work on creating a firm structure, or geometry, to your still life painting, and use food to work on those ever-present parts of any good painting: value, color, and composition.  This five session course will work on quicker paintings at the beginning of the course and work up to more complex still life paintings.
Amy Brnger has painted still life, flowers and landscape for as long as she has been an artist. She uses nature as a vehicle, or an excuse, to paint, and enjoys painting places and things with and about which she is familiar or curious. With her interiors, still life and landscape are often paired together, as both influence one another equally.  These subjects are strongly related, since the kinds of still life objects she often chooses to paint are themselves directly derived from the landscape: flowers; leaves; fruits and vegetables; bird’s nests, etc. She also enjoys painting flowers and food on their own.
