Paint loose and free with palette knives and expressive brushwork while maintaining solid principles of design. By setting ourselves up with strong compositions, harmonious color palettes, and a plan to maintain correct values we pave the way for the freedom of paint application. We will employ a variety of fun exercises designed to build confidence and individual expression. The emphasis will be on process, exploration, and developing new habits.
Plan to paint from your own reference photographs of landscapes, marine subjects, people in the landscape, and/or floral still life. You can also choose to paint plein air, or from your own still life setups. Painting from life is always encouraged. Oil painters and acrylic painters of all levels (some experience helpful) will benefit from this workshop. Demos and instruction will be in oil.
