I am pleased to get the chance to teach a workshop this fall in Valona, CA. Valona is a quaint historical town about 30 minutes outside of San Francisco. The big spacious gallery not only carries great Northern California artists, but also has wonderful views of the Bay. Over 3 days students will be learning the speed studies approach to painting. I believe this approach is critical for painters who want to keep improving and producing work. It's not all about speed, but through the process students walk away with a better knowledge of brushwork, color, design elements, and subject matter. Kicking off the weekend I will conduct an instructional demo that walks through this process and discusses my painting approach, color palette, and tips. Students will be painting between 5-6 studies a day and covering a wide array of topics.
Join me for a 2 day workshop - How to paint the figure in environment. Saturday morning's instructional demo will highlight my approach to painting the figure while considering the environment. We will also discuss how to set a stage for your compositions and applying that to your paintings. This workshop features: one on one instruction, setting up a model, composition, color and brushwork explored.
