"Deep Dive : Color"
Thursdays, June 3-24, 2021
 

This workshop will unlock secrets of color structure found in nature and in master paintings throughout art history. “Painting from the heart” is not enough. To become a work of art, ideas and emotion must take form, organized into a coherent, expressive design. As I like to say, “Vomiting up the rainbow does not a colorist make.” Good painters, like musicians, create harmonies intentionally. If you are ready to go deeper in your understanding of color, this workshop is for you. Topics include: How to Create Color Harmonies, Image Structure Basics, The Power of Hierarchy in Color, The Secret of Color Transitions, Seeing Color in Nature, Film, and Pop Culture, Staying Open to Wonder, Overcoming Personal Obstacles, Painting with Confidence and Freedom.

"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.
