"Modern Impressionism in Action"
October 19-22, 2022

Colley Whisson believes "It is not what you paint but how you paint it". He has a strong belief that he is not copying nature but giving expression to visual ideas. Colley teaches the fundamentals needed to produce paintings with powerful light effects, loose brushwork and sensitivity to the subject. Colley's workshops are conducted in a positive and uplifting manner. In this workshop, he will focus on tone, composition, brushwork, color saturation, and pay special attention to the importance of edges. Colley employs a step-by-step process, demonstrating to all levels of students the best approach to constructing a painting. Weather permitting, Colley will conduct an outdoor demonstration to show his approach to working on site, or 'en plein air'.
