This workshop will give you the methods and the confidence to paint boldly and loosely in any genre.
Starting from simple still life on day 1 and progressing to photo references in other genres, we’ll explore methods for loosening up tight paintings as well as for avoiding excessive tightness in the first place.
You’ll be encouraged toward greater broadness – not for its own sake, but as a way to find your own happy limits. We won’t avoid all lines and hard edges because they can serve as powerful contrasts for loose or lost edges in other areas of a painting. Instead, our goal will be to explore the full range of edge treatments, from broad to controlled, and to use them to create richer paintings.
Throughout the workshop, we’ll focus on simplification, composition, and the heirarchies within value, color, and mark making.
