The emphasis in this class will be three fold:

  •  Learning and practicing how to mix colours “ on the fly” with impasto knifework.
  • Combining the two above mentioned techniques on our paintings.

Day one: will be spent going over colour theory, painting background and adding the first layer to our fallen leaves.

Day two: We paint in our trees and the path,  spending time filling out our compositions.

Day three: We will work on completing our painting by working on details through brush work and knife work refining our leaves and adding lighting.

A little about my impasto workshop series:


• Each of these workshops is carefully designed to be a fun and supportive beginner level exploration.


• As a teacher, I am focused on imparting techniques through clear, directed discussions and demonstrations that support the methods and concepts that we will be learning.

  

• Together, we strive to create an exciting and safe space to explore our artistic desires and foster our talents;   with everyone having a successful and fulfilling experience.


  • In each class we will be working on basic painting concepts ranging in skill level; while creating pieces that you would be proud to take home with you.



Workshops will focus on :

    •    How to use a pallette knife,
    •    mixing colours and medium,
    •    the use of light in painting,     
    •    a tonal value lesson
    •    sculpting with pallette knives
    •    tips and tricks to paint the subject matter at hand.


Additionally,  I  like to do a group discussion and peer critique.  Participants will then have time to implement suggestions.
