Observation, Abstraction & Invention:  Still Life and Figure Painting for OIl and Water Based Media.

Learn approaches to still life and figure painting that emphasize the abstraction of form and the expressive possibilities of color and composition.  During the first two days of the workshop, we will work from a visually rich still life. Exercises will focus on loosening up, achieving fresh, unmuddied color and developing new approaches to composition.  These exercises will inform the pictures made during day three of the workshop, as we paint from the live, clothed model. On this final day of the workshop, we will combine direct observation with painting from memory and from previous paintings.  The emphasis throughout the workshop will be on abstraction, invention, and liberation from any so-called rules of painting. Open to all water-based media and oil painters.
