Discover a fresh approach to seeing color in this four-week class with acclaimed artist Tom Balderas. Participants will study an approach to painting or the ‘gestural color’ method. This class will focus on color relationships and will emphasize the idea of trusting the first impression you receive when observing the subject you wish to paint, whether still life, landscape, figurative or from reference material. If practiced with regularity, this approach to painting can take a painter far and help to instill the attitude that “all great painting can be found in the honest and humble study”.
Tom will both guide and encourage while helping to further develop a sensitive eye toward color as well as making bold statements in paint.
All levels of ability are welcome.
