I am thrilled to announce our spring retreat
featuring oil instruction by
Thursday, May 7 - Sunday, May 10, 2020
Richard's purpose in painting is to provoke the viewer to interact with his pieces.
His paintings are his voice, and stroke by stroke, he composes a whole that relates his vision.
This workshop is designed for students to improve their impressionist landscape painting skills. Our goal at the end of the four days will be to paint with more confidence and with clear intent. Working on canvases with large brushes will help students focus on the bigger shapes of a composition. Emphasis will be put on paint application, values, edges, color harmony and simplifying a composition to create paintings that have unity.
Richard will demonstrate daily and show you stroke by stroke how he composes his vision. He will go through step by step how to edit, omit and simplify certain elements of a painting to make a stronger composition. Students will come away with a deeper understanding of how to approach and execute a painting from start to finish.
