PAINTING CLASS, 10/13

100.00

Saturday October 13, 9AM - 4PM Santa Barbara, CA, Hendry's Beach. BYO painting gear! 

If you have oil paints, a portable easel, and are ready to go, this is the class for you! I will start the day with a demonstration on my personal approach to landscape painting before you choose your own subject to paint. I will then spend the class time working one-on-one with each of you, tailoring my advice to individual experience levels and interests.

Topics I will cover are: 

-       How to choose your subject and set yourself up for success considering any limitations you may experience due to time, shifting light, or changing weather.

-       How to shift your observational skills for the purpose of translating the three-dimensional world onto a two-dimensional surface. (how to see abstractly) 

-       Common optical illusions and how they can affect your artwork

-       How to work from general to specific using a step-by-step method for developing a painting.

-       The importance of clear drawing decisions in the beginning stages of a painting.

-       Understanding color in terms of value, hue, and chroma and how those qualities can be used to express depth in the picture plane.

-       A brief introduction to different materials and how to use them. This will include supports, grounds, mediums, glazes, and pigments. A handout with this information will be provided. 

- optional visit to my studio after class, about 2 miles away from class location
