Watch it Grow

Speed Studies is a great for many reasons! A couple, is testing out new styles (expressive painting) and exploring color. Watch the painting grow in the slideshow below and final product at the bottom!

Here I set up a still life in a analogous color scheme. I picked colors in the red family and then added a few elements of it's opposite, green. This is a great exercise to create mood and harmony in a painting. I kept things very loose until the end. This allowed me to keep edges soft creating a lost and found approach to the edges. Lots of layers of color were added while I shifted colors to create harmony in the piece.

Class- change in time

Hi all, We enjoyed our first week of Speed Studies. The students did great and really kept up with the change in pace. I'm excited to see the progress as we cont. forward. There will be a change in time. We will now be meeting from 12-4 every Thursday. This change will hopefully work better with schedules and beating the commute traffic.

Take a Class

Interested in becoming a better painter? Come take a class with me. I am excited to start teaching this class as I saw huge leaps in my artwork while taking a similar class. It allowed me to experiment, get better brush handling skills, work on color combinations, and gain overall confidence. We will paint still life, landscape, and figure, rotating the subjects each week. Each study will be timed allowing 30min, 40 and 60 min. amounts of time to paint.
