See the techniques of the masters unfold in front of you in this extensive oil painting demonstration. Professional portrait artist Theodore Xaras will reproduce portrait masterworks, using the historical palettes and techniques of the original artists. See how the "limited palette" – black, white, yellow ochre, and red – can produce a fully-realized portrait through the re-creation of works by Velasquez, Hals, and/or Rubens. Learn how Titian used the techniques of glazing and scumbling thin layers of translucent and opaque color to further enhance an underlying limited palette painting. Lectures will include a look at portrait examples from other artists utilizing these methods, as well as a paint mixing demonstration to physically illustrate how so few colors can produce so many vibrant tones.

"Optical Color in Painting (Online)"
Thursdays, May 27 - July 1, 2021
 

Enrich your painting practice through an understanding of optical color, the perception of color resulting from the combination of hues placed next each other, rather than physically mixed. Just as important as admixture (the blending of pigments), optical mixing through the application of adjacent color strokes allows the creation of a variety of luminous effects. Examine optical color through historical examples from 13th-century egg tempera painting to the light-filled work of the Impressionists and Pointillists. Demystify this exciting perceptual phenomenon and learn how to apply it to your own art by working within a structured plan from varied subject matter in acrylic or gouache paint. Instruction features lecture, and demonstration, and ample references.

"Painting a Nocturnal Architectural setting of Santa Fe"
June 19-21, 2021
 

This scene from Santa Fe, New Mexico was chosen to paint because of its cozy street scene with unique shapes of colors and values. The composition lends itself perfectly to change a day time scene to a moon lit scene. A value sketch will help to establish eye level and light direction for our painting. Using painterly, impressionistic brushwork, we’ll learn glazing techniques to enhance color and add drama to our composition. As a Master in the American Impressionist Society, Carr will be emphasizing how to achieve dynamic paintings using loose and painterly brushwork while capturing light. Join us!

"Creating the Illusion of Depth: Atmospheric Perspective"
June 24, 2021
 

Online Zoom Demo. The illusion of depth in a painting—whether non-objective or realistic—can be very dynamic and pleasing. This appearance is called atmospheric perspective and is used to make contours or objects appear 3-dimensional and to recede into the distance. This effect is obtained by changing values (lightness and darkness) of the color and by reducing the intensity of the color. In a 2-part demo, Alex will demonstrate how to achieve this illusion of depth in both an abstract, and a landscape painting. Alex will be using oils, but the methods and color mixings are the same for all painting media. Plan to paint in your medium of choice.
