Amy Brnger - Reworking an Unsuccessful Painting (Class Recording) - Free!

Date Recorded: Friday, September 3, 2021

Join Amy Brnger as she shares her techniques for reworking an unsuccessful painting. Reworking a bad painting is always an alternative to destroying it. Working on one of her own failed paintings, Amy will demo some of the techniques she uses. Be forewarned, it might not work out!  However, participants will be able to see and discuss why the painting is unsuccessful, discuss corrective options, and watch Amy repaint an image.

Amy Brnger, from Eliot, Maine, has painted still life, flowers, interiors and landscape for as long as she has been an artist. Nature is her vehicle, and she enjoys painting places and things with and about which she is familiar or curious. Forgotten and overlooked places are particular ly intriguing. Flowers from her garden are also a favorite.  Her paintings are expressive, energetic, and attempt to capture the changing nature of living things.

Amy has been teaching painting since 2012, but has been a painter for over 35 years.  Thanks to the Coronavirus, she finally took the plunge and learned how to teach online and loves it.
