Realist painting may depend on the object, but how a painting is constructed is dependent on relationships. In this workshop we will explore how we see, how we can see differently and how to make comparisons and see relationships. We will discuss values, color, temperature and the importance of edges and learn how to use that information in an expressive and interpretive way. The result will be the creation of an interesting and sensitive painting.
Live models will be our principle subject matter, with one afternoon spent discussing and using photographs. There will be demonstrations, a slide presentation, lecture and individual instruction offered throughout the week. This class is for the intermediate to advanced painter.
