This class is intended to expand your knowledge base for creating a strong painting. You and I and a small group of artists interested in improving their painting skills will set aside one morning a week to make art. You can experience the fun, positive personal growth, and camaraderie of the small group and professional guidance. If the class is a gift, let us know and you'll receive a gift certificate for the participant along with their materials list.
In the class series, we will focus on painting natural landscapes. All six classes will be held indoors in my Soquel studio. Each student will work at their own pace with individual attention during the painting process. Through the course of the six classes, we will each be developing the various skills and techniques of seeing and painting to move from smaller images to larger.
I will demonstrate the various steps and guide you with some basic color mixtures and provide instruction regarding value, color, shape, line, texture, and edges as they relate to the project for the class. Learning to “quick sketch” will aid you in exploring your composition in more detail before committing to a large format. This class is intended to expand your knowledge base for creating a strong painting.
You will work from your own reference material, photos and / or plein air sketches. You will bring three or four images to work from during the series. We will explore the elements of painting together. Simple value sketches will be made before moving on to color. Different formats and sections of your references will be painted, before moving to a larger format.
I will contact each registrant to assure participants are all of a level to learn well together. A suggested materials list will be sent to you after you register. And we’ll all have fun!
