Painting Classes 2018





Fundamentals of Value

Value is one of the most important elements in creating a strong and dynamic painting.  When the values miss the mark, the painting suffers.... even if our color is saturated and the shapes correct.   This class will give you skills to help you translate color into values with exercises that will benefit all your future paintings.

Painting Buildings and Architecture

Painting Architecture that grabs one's attention requires an understanding of perspective as well as how edges and texture can draw the viewer in.  Use of color, it's saturation and temperature are also the tools an artist needs to utilize when painting structures.  We will exercise using these resources in each class to paint with color that not only represents the age, newness or texture of a structure, but also the distance and atmosphere necessary to achieve a cohesive scene.  Class limited to 8.

Edges: Tackling Clouds and Trees

This class will emphasize the use of hard, lost and soft edges.  How to create soft yet structured cloudscapes that "live" in the sky (they don't sit on it).  Also how to achieve the turn of the top of trees or the delicate fan of thin branches.  We will exercise in painting these subjects with a focus on creating volume as well as a sense of distance.

COLOR: Keeping your Paintings Dynamic


 How do we make our paintings more interesting?  Knowing what particular colors 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.
