The goal of this online workshop will be to paint the figure in proper perspective with special attention to value. Students will learn to paint quickly with decisiveness, while striving for a fresh carefree style.  Marjorie will encourage students to use larger brushes in order to hasten their paintings along. Working from a minimal palette of paint colors to simplify color mixing, students will paint from images that Marjorie provides.  Come prepared to work hard, and be FEARLESS-
You’ll be surprised at how simplifying what we see can say it all!

At the end of the first two days, students will be given an assignment. The class will reconvene on June 23 for a group critique and demo.


Award winning artist, Marjorie Stewart Hicks‘s canvases capture the play of light and the drama of shadow and color that fall on any and all of her subjects. John Singer Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla, and Henry Potthast inspire her works. Marjorie is grateful for the talented and supportive community of artists in Nashville, where she resides. Marjorie is equally at home painting commissioned portraits in studio or outdoor scenes in a style inspired by the Impressionists.
