 Course Description:


A two day workshop designed to help beginning and intermediate painters to boil down their compositions whether in the studio or in the field.  Learn to increase your dynamic range and create more powerful paintings.  First, I will focus on “the bones” of the painting and how to begin before you start your own work. From there I will be floating around to help you individually with your own painting projects to help you grow from where you are in your painting experience. All 2D mediums welcome, mindful that my expertise is in pastel and oil.  A general knowledge of your medium is suggested. 

BYOM-bring your own materials! In addition, bring high quality printouts of three possible photos at least 8x10 in size from which to work.  If you have an iPad, I recommend bringing it, fully charged with your reference on it to work from. 

Easels, tables and chairs will be provided.
