"Magical Oil Portraits"
September 28, 2018
 

The method I teach is classified as "alla prima" or “wet on wet”. We will use reference photos of portraits, prepare substrate, and create overall strokes to plan the face and fill in details in a manner that captures the essence of the face. Though we will use our intuition, this is more of a technical class where we observe deeply, measure accurately, and apply strokes of paint that are true to the colors and values of our subjects. We will discuss concepts of realism, while aiming for magical realism, where we look within to make adjustments to the paint that we transfer from our brushes to our substrates, to make real, the vision of what we are painting.

"Transformations in Oil and Cold Wax"
September 28-29, 2018
 

Creating abstract art with oil paint and cold wax medium involves taking a journey into yourself and your world --without a map. The process is intuitive, bold and full of discovery. Your pieces will take on lives of their own through the many layers of oil and cold wax you apply, addition of mixed media elements, and the areas you choose to scrape away. There are many opportunities for happy accidents and unexpected joys. Each oil and cold wax piece is a result of a moment in time and space where elements converge in a one-time-only way.

"Luminous Landscapes in Oil and Cold Wax"
September 30, 2018
 

Discover the translucent beauty of painting with oil and cold wax medium! Experiment with free and bold abstract landscapes with this delicious medium and Arches oil paper. Unlike with hot wax, you need no appliances to achieve maximum cold wax goodness. You can add and scrape off layers as you want to, so no need to be concerned about mistakes! You’ll work on several pieces at once, using tools such as squeegees, bamboo skewers, rubber jar openers, combs, and more. In addition to painting, we’ll explore incising, using paint sticks, painting knives, oil pastels, and adding collage elements. Join me in exploring this unusual and interactive medium. You’ll leave with several gorgeous pieces!
