Description

A “still life” is a story… The subject matter needs to contain elements of the story, they are not objects to be rendered… that’s illustration. Making a painting from elements of a still life needs a thorough exploration of what can make an engaging composition. I will supply the subject material, the lighting and the discussion and demonstration to guide you through the process. It’s challenging and its pretty fun too!

JohnDavid Anderson

This workshop is appropriate for both acrylics and oils. Bring your usual materials for painting. JohnDavid will bring copies of a photo reference related to the specific skills he will be teaching. If you have a painting you are working on and would like some help with, bring that along too.

Palette Knife Painting with SUE A. MILLER

Save the date! When: Saturday, October 26th, 2019
Amazing inspiration from a superb artist, Sue A. Miller, for a steal of a price!

A day workshop learning the technique of painting with a palette knife. Sue's experience with using a palette knife goes beyond the traditional tool. Sue's paintings are created with under-paintings, layers and "scrape-downs".

Don't let this intimidate you! Sue will walk you through the basics of using a traditional palette knife but then expose you to a world of unconventional tools and their effects.

Whether you paint representational or abstract, by the end of the class you will have a "handle" on what to use to achieve your desired results.

To register, please send an email to Ali Leonard OAGworkshops@bell.net
