Supply List

Everyone’s home contains spectacular places to paint, spaces that you walk by countless times a day.  How do you make that corner of the room special, a place of magnificence?

We will work together to create a quiet but strong presence with interiors, toning down details, finding an essence to the space that highlights targeted light, deep shadows, and a few items that make that room or space a home.

Amy will demonstrate a painting each week, using interior images from her home in southern Maine.  Participants will select images of their own, based on instruction on creating an appealing image from your phone/camera and turning into a dynamic painting.   Feedback will be offered for each assignment via the private page. Demos will be conducted in oil, but participants can use oil or acrylic for painting.

  • Week 1: Simplifying a special place
  • Week 2: Where’s the light?
  • Week 3: Dynamic color, surrounded by neutrals
  • Week 4: Expressive strokes and energy
