Which Workshop whispers to your soul?
The beautiful area known as Sarasota/Bradenton in Florida. and the island of Longboat Key
"Ca da Zan " oil on canvas 8x8
Each day starts with a morning demonstration and lecture
focusing on bold composition with underpainting.
You will learn to make quick decisions and simplify for the most impact.
We will discuss Color relationships, detail, form and edges
Put the brakes on and learn to 'bake the cake' before you apply the frosting (accents)
Participants should be able to start a second painting for the afternoon session
so it is suggested to work no larger than 12x12. I will be working square.
Supervised painting until 4:00 pm each day
This workshop is focused on making you a faster and better painter,
capturing the essence of the landscape
Workshop is from 10:00 - 4:00 pm
2 day Workshop Cost pp is $325.00 US
Plein Air painting TIP
With plein air painting, I often see artists confused about what to focus on outdoors.
Some truly don't know where to begin painting something in front of them.
What plein air painting is about, is relating
your feelings about the scene, and not about copying nature.
I have seen artists walk around endlessly looking for subject.
A much more dramatic way to paint is to look for 'light'.
Subject is secondary for me. An ordinary object in a wondrous light becomes extraordinary !
And when you have excitement starting your painting, you can more easily carry that through to the finished piece,
instead of deciding at the finishing what you can do to make the painting more exciting.
Is your painting missing something but you can't put your finger on it ?
It probably wasn't there to begin with...
Go for the drama !
