Jeff Legg: The Conceptual Still Life
Breathe light into your still life with a more thoughtful approach. Combine vision and knowledge to paint extraordinary compositions. Learn how to think about painting “light” instead of objects. Jeff’s thought process will be revealed through setting up a concept and executing it by going directly to paint in this 5 day workshop. Daily demonstrations and commentary throughout the process will provide the opportunity to understand his paining methodology. There will be open discussion of material choices, prop selection, paint application, values, color palette and lighting. One on one critiques will be provided with special attention to individual needs.
Jeff Legg studied painting and drawing at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and also Atelier Lack, a private art studio school modeled after 15th to 19th century classical European instruction. His “old master” techniques combined with inspired contemporary use of chiaroscuro engage fellow artists and collectors world wide.
Today, Legg’s artwork is represented by some of the nation’s most important galleries. He is an Oil Painters of America Master painter and a nationally recognized award winning artist. In 2012 he received the coveted Gold Medal at the Oil Painters of America National Exhibition in the Masters division, OPA’s highest honor. His paintings have been featured in numerous publications such as American Artist, North Light books, Art of the West, Western Art Collector, American Art Collector, Fine Art Connoisseur and was featured on the cover of Southwest Art Magazine.
