The Power of Destruction Oil Painting Workshop 2016
|"6th Street Bridge Reflections"|
Saturday and Sunday, September 24-25, 2016 join me for a special workshop at Randy Higbee Gallery.
Workshop DescriptionHow many paintings have you created that you aren't happy with? How many paintings do you have hidden away hoping that one day soon you'll work out all the problems with it and make it better?
Join me as I show you the power of taking risks when you are painting. Learn to let go of perfection and open the door to a new way of working creatively. Learn about edges, why abstract shapes are important even in a representational painting and different methods of applying paint. Having a focal point, focusing on large shapes, value and color mixing will also be discussed, however, this class is very different from all of my other classes so, if you've taken a class with me in the past be prepared for something new.
In the morning class will start with a painting a demonstration using photo reference. After lunch I'll provide one on one instruction to each student.
Please bring several photo references, several blank canvases and one or more finished paintings that you wish you could improve.
If you are really brave, bring in a painting you aren't happy with and we will work directly on top of it by using the techniques you will learn in class.
