Special Saturday: Exploring composition

Some things we just get in life. Without any formal art education, we can have a sense of what “works” and what doesn’t as we compose our paintings with our reference material. This is not a day when I’ll be providing any “answers.” We will look at composition, play with composition and see what we see. We’ll also share with each other our thoughts and reactions. Much like our color palette – composition is also very personal.
When: Sat February 20 2016 10:00 AM - 4:00 AM

Special Saturday: Light-Dark and Creating contrast

There is no light without darkness, creating contrast makes for compelling, dramatic paintings. We’ll look at how that is and will focus on imagery that gives us a good starting place.

When: Sat March 12 2016 10:00 AM - 4:00 AM

Special Saturday: Painting translucent petals

We’ll continue the exploration of contrast, light and dark and apply it specifically to flowers. The magic of light as it goes through a flowers petals makes painting captivating. It’s about contrast and saving the whites and light values. Plus, it’s a whole lot easier to start with the right reference images. When you tune it, it’s not as hard as it seems.

Special Saturday: Let is shine! - painting shiny things

I’m often asked – specifically about my painting Fauchon Eclairs – how I got it to look like it’s shiny when what I’m working with is matte paper and paint. It’s all about… you guessed it… contrast – again! Let’s look together at how our reference images provide all the information to create the illusion of shine. Our job is to get out of the way and paint what we see!

Special Saturday: "Pushing" color in our paintings

For those of us who are addicted to color and especially more intense, vibrant color, sometimes the “real” world isn’t enough. I’ve found myself pumping up the vibrancy in my work for a while – and it seems to be increasing. We’ll look at the visual cues and supporting the inclination within us to make our paintings sing with color!

Special Saturday: Eyes - the windows to the soul

I’ve only painted a few portraits and as of this writing – at the start of the year, I’ve mostly painted dog’s eyes. But I’ve done this enough to realize that if painted just so, our paintings can seem to be embodied by the spirit of their subjects. There is a lot of subtlety to pay attention to.

Special Saturday: Creating Volume

It’s straight-forward to paint flat shapes – circles and ovals. But creating dimension – as in painting pieces of fruit, so that we can see and even feel the actual volume in the fruit requires us to pick up certain visual details in our subject matter. Come see how this works!
