"Still Life Drawing with Charcoal / Subtractive Drawing Technique"
June 23-25, 2018
 

In this workshop students will engage in the process of drawing using the technique of subtractive drawing. We will be working on gesso primed paper utilizing a variety of drawing tools including brushes, an array of erasures, sandpaper, exacto knives and turpentine. Beginning with a solid black prepared paper students will render through direct observation the form and light of the still life while giving consideration to just how much visual information is necessary for the image to be convincing.

"Plein Air Flower Painting"
August 9-11, 2018
 

This workshop will consist of plein air in some of Whidbey Island's beautiful gardens, and also one or two studio days. I will show you how to simplify a flower scene. I will demo in the morning, and the students will paint in the afternoon. On the second day we will return to the site and I will demo on how to finish a painting. The students will either work on the same painting or start a new one, whichever they prefer. For the studio day, I will again demo, with the focus on how to design a floral still life that has a fresh and natural look with lots of movement. The students then will set up their own still lifes.

"Watercolor Workshop"
October 19-21, 2018
 

This three-day workshop will be held in my studio on Whidbey Island in Langley and will focus on painting a still life in watercolor. On the first morning I will give a demonstration of my approach to painting in this medium that I enjoy so much. I will discuss my preferred methods and materials and the importance of the fundamentals of solid drawing and composition. We will also explore the unique properties that watercolor has to offer. After a lunch break, workshop participants will begin their paintings from a still life set up. Painting will continue for the following two days. Personal attention will be given to each participant and further demonstration will be provided as needed.

"Composition through Still Life"
November 1-4, 2018
 

In this workshop we will use still life to explore composition. We will consider the geometry of the arrangement, viewpoint, color, value relationships and balance in a series of small painted studies, working toward a composition that is constructed as a whole unit. Focus will be placed on satisfying and accurate drawing, value and color relationships. The workshop will be taught through lecture, demonstration and critique.
