A single subject – even a single image – can provide the spark for many paintings.  By varying techniques, compositions, concepts, and color palettes, you can create a series in which each painting refers to its source yet pushes beyond simple reproduction.

In this workshop we’ll develop several paintings with the aim of pushing beyond our usual painting techniques and habits.

We’ll start each piece with a different method and intention, launching it along a unique path.  Avoiding our habits of technique and decision making, we’ll explore the “what if” of creativity and strive to bring experimentation and play to your work.   

The resulting series will surprise you with its scope and give you the courage to take more painting risks in the future.

Ingrid Christensen is an award winning painter and instructor who specializes in figurative and still life oil painting. Influenced by French and Russian Impressionism, her work is an exploration of light, color and dynamic mark making.  A self-proclaimed “paint nerd”, Ingrid has written and featured in Winsor & Newton Masterclass videos, contributed articles to Artsy Magazine, and taught sold-out workshops in Canada and Mexico.

Ingrid lives in Calgary, Canada and has made her peace with snow.
