Creating dynamic oil painting.                                                             


The first morning we will discuss the anatomy of a painting.  What are the ingredients that goes into creating a beautiful work of art.  We will do some thumbnail sketches, then apply those principles to our paintings.  We will discuss and I’ll show some examples that show the importance of value, design, color and edges.

We will have the rest of the afternoon and the next day to work on your paintings.  You’ll receive lots of individual help.  Bring your source photo in black and white and one in color in 8x10 size.  You can either work on a landscape or portrait or if you want to bring some objects for a still life that would be fine.  Limited to 12 people.

 This is for all skill levels.
