Level: All
Medium: All

The last several years, whenever i clip a fresh flower or buy a bouquet to paint, i find the thought of Manet’s late work unavoidable, instructive, and inspiring.  In this transcription based course we will begin by doing quick notes after Manet’s paintings, and then begin to compose our own works inspired by his choices and our insights.

Born in 1977 and raised in Northern California, Gage Opdenbrouw is an award winning painter, teacher, and woodworker, who until recent times, traveled frequently both to paint and to teach. He now teaches live online courses in drawing and painting to artists from all over the country and around the world.

When he’s not working, he is most often found in Northern California among some of the tallest and quietest trees on earth, where the illuminated fog sweeps in from the pacific. He shares his home and studio in the redwoods with his love, writer Kelly Gray, and two dogs: Hank, a terrier/beagle who remembers every single place he ever found street chicken, and Nootka, a very vocal and sweet husky pup who looks like the best giant squirrel ever. He plays bass and guitar, very poorly and with great enthusiasm.
