New Painting from Photographs Class 2017



Painting from Photos


Many times the only reference we have is from a photograph.  Paintings should be inspired by the photo and not used to simply replicate every detail of it.

This class will focus on constructing ideas, making editing choices, color shifts, edge control...all the way toward the goal of completing one painting more dynamic than the photo.  
We will address not only the act of creating the painting, but also the thought process involved in making a better painting, from concept to completion.

Thursday’s     June 1 to July 6.  10:30am - 2pm.      Cost:  $350.  1 spot open
Friday’s          June 2 to July 7.  10:30am - 2pm.      Cost:  $350.  4 spaces open

Strengthening your Paintings: Tonal Fundamentals


 Description:   In painting, the terms “tone” and “value” refer to the lightness or darkness of a color. Most painters would agree value is more important than color, in painting.   In this class, we will work in monochrome with simple to complex images. We will also work on relating and pushing the values to create a more exciting composition.  This class will also focus on drawing and composition for a more dynamic finish.  3-week class
Cost $180. Class limit 8

Thursday's   July 27 - August 10.  
Friday's.       July  28 -  August 11.      


Please email me  robin@robinhall.com if you are interested in taking this program



Dynamic use of Color:

Description:   How do we make our paintings more interesting?  Knowing what particular color to choose can make our painting more appealing and are key to what we refer to as “harmony” in a painting.   Any given color has the components of “hue” “value” and “chroma”.   All three components must be considered for producing a successful painting.  The combination of certain colors can also enhance and create a more pleasing and interesting painting.  We will be working on exercises to emphasize an improved use of color.  3-week class. Cost $180. Class limit 8


Thursday.   August 31- Sept 14.

Art Talk • Demo at Roger's Gardens


Robin Hall   •   oil   10x16


Clark Mitchell   •   pastel  8x18


Thank you all who came to listen and watch Clark Mitchell and myself do a demo and art talk at Roger's Gardens, in Corona del Mar, yesterday.  A little more of a talk than a demo, but I loved the 2 artist presentation of us each using a different medium (Mitchell in soft pastel and I painted in oil) yet, working from the same image.   These are our 1-hour paintings.  It's always so interesting how artists interpret the same scene.

I am very appreciative to those that trekked a long distance to watch us, especially the couple that drove a total of 268 miles.  That's dedication!

It is my hope everyone went away with some added knowledge and a little inspiration to pull the brushes out and go for it.   In addition I want to thank Theresa Marino and Roger's Gardens for hosting the event and Rolf's Wine  http://rolfswine.com/ for serving such a delicious selection of wine.

Please send me an email if you wish to be put on my email blast for workshop and class notices.

On Saturday May 26 from 3-4:30pm in the Amphitheater at Roger's Gardens, Robin Hall will be painting in oil and Clark Mitchell will be working in Pastel; each tackling the same image, each with a different approach and each sharing their process as they approach the same goal of creating a work of art.

Hope to see you there.
