Whether you’re a beginner picking up a brush for the first time, or someone returning to art after a long time away from the easel, this workshop is designed to be informative, fun, and stimulating. Beginning with a discussion on the “basics” of painting (from materials to paint handling), the workshop will also address the fundamentals of composition, color, value, edges, and perspective. Instruction will focus on painting from still life setups in the studio, including how to develop greater skills of observation, simplification, and quickly painting “wet on wet” (alla prima) to translate what you see into strong paintings. Participants will paint 2-3 quick alla prima paintings and observe a short painting demonstration by Dan.
Open to all levels.
