"Alla Prima Clothed Figure & Portrait Painting"
October 18-21, 2018
 

This workshop is about painting the clothed figure and portrait alla prima (wet into wet) and the techniques used to create a fresh, direct response to our subjects. Then students will paint from the model. For the portrait, we’ll talk about the overall shape of the head and placing the features. Working on a toned ground, we’ll start by sketching and placing the subject on the canvas. Then we block in two simple values: light and dark tone. After that we begin adding mid-tones. By learning to simplify form, values and color, we begin to interpret and break down the figure into more understandable tones and shapes instead of becoming distracted by details. Skill Level: Beginner to Advanced. Visit davidshevlino.com.

"Painting the Landscape in Oil"
November 15-17, 2018
 

Painting is always about controlling the viewer’s eye. Good composition and drawing is paramount to this effort. Students will focus on considering composition before the painting is started as well as the four planes of a landscape and inherent values. The workshop will be held indoors, and we will paint from resource photos. Perry Austin will demonstrate each day during the workshop. Students will create several studies of their own during the workshop that can be used for future reference or to create their own studio paintings. Other subjects will include using the camera to compose reference materials, color studies, en plein air studies and variations in composition. Skill Level: Open to all levels of students.
