"Randy Sexton - Expressive Brushwork"
Wednesdays, February 2-23, 2022
 

This class is taught live via Zoom. California-based artist Randall Sexton is nationally known for his use of expressive brushwork. Like your signature, your brushwork is recognizable. In this 4-week class, Sexton will share his methods for creating loose expressive brushwork and will cover fundamentals of successful picture-making: three dimensionality, value, color mixing, brushwork, paint quality, mood and concept. Whatever the subject matter, the success of any painting relies on a solid understanding of the basic principles of picture making in tandem with the creativity and passion of the artist.

"Palette Knife Painting for Sky and Water in Oils or Acrylics"
February 11, 2022
 

We often think that the palette knife will only be useful for painting highly textured subjects or for working in a thick, impasto method. Imagine painting beautiful, smooth water with reflections and dramatic skies. Once you learn how to hold and to load your palette knife with paint, these effects will seem to happen automatically as you paint. Alex will be painting in oils, but the method is the same for acrylics. Paint along in either oil or acrylic.

"Six Primary Colors for Unlimited Possibilities"
March 11, 2022
 

Imagine painting with a wide variety of colors by mixing only six specially chosen colors. Painting with a limited palette of colors is one sure way to achieve unity and color harmony. The word “limited” makes us think we won’t have lots of colors, but with the three primary colors, we can mix all the colors. Alex Sharma will demonstrate the mixing possibilities and the wide color variations achievable. Paint along in any medium.
