This class will focus on painting the quiet beauty of everyday.  Award-winning artist Gage Opdenbrouw will share the artists that considers to be the poets of the intimate, from Bonnard, and Vuillard, to Josef Sudek, to Matisse and Diebenkorn, and Albert Marquet, who have made great use of this evocative and seemingly simple motif: the window.
Interior space versus exterior space.  One bumps up against the limitations of the medium early and often and the chess game to find a flat equivalent with colored mud that conveys this complex sensation is often exciting to a painter engaged with direct observation of light and space.
Participants will work from life, drawings, photos, and the inspiration of the masters, to create evocative paintings of the space inside and the space outside.  We will look at work by contemporary painters, and 19th century and early modern work, as a well of inspiration and pictorial ideas for this simple and endlessly evocative motif.
This class will not include in class work time.  Class will be recorded, and will include 1-1.5 hours of critique and discussion of student work each session.
