I am thrilled to announce our 2nd Retreat featuring
November 15-17, 2019
Our class goal is to help you recognize that paintings are made up of shapes, and each shape has a named value and color that, painted correctly, will make your paintings sing! The hardest part about painting is to see things simply. We will concentrate on painting what you see and not what you know...by training your eyes to break a scene down into the basic shapes. Starting with large basic shapes is the key to the foundation of a painting. In order to have a feeling of light, you need the darks and the mid tones to set up the lights. Color creates vibrancy when surrounded by neutrals. We will begin with values studies and then introduce how to identify and mix the color you see by using a limited palette. We have a few fun exercises planned as well as some demos.
