"Color Theory for Painters"
February 29, 2024
 

Imagine 6 specific colors - reds, blues and yellows -- that will change the way you paint and how you see and mix colors. Now imagine using these colors to achieve clear, bright colors, the illusion of distance, volume, depth and shadow! This is a hands-on full-day workshop to immerse yourself in color possibilities and put your learning into practice. Come prepared to paint along in the medium of your choice as Alex introduces, in a step-by-step manner, some surprising color combinations that make for brighter, more intense and fresh colors, and how to alter them to create the illusion of distance and shadow. In the afternoon we will paint from still life to practice using our colors.

"Transparency for Water & Glass in Oils and Acrylics"
April 8, 2024
 

Oil and acrylic colors can achieve that transparent - almost watercolor - look with deep, jewel-like colors. The addition of a paint medium specific to oils or acrylics along with the application of specific techniques, methods and color combinations, will result in transparent depth and illusion. Whether painting in an abstract or realistic form, transparency can create the illusion of water and glass, or any subject. Spontaneity of method and color mixing for the subject will be achieved through technique exercises and demonstration. All levels of experience are welcome!!

"Creating Dynamic Still Life Paintings in Oil"
May 13-15, 2024
 

Still life painting can be highly rewarding, but it can also be intimidating. Perhaps your past attempts to paint fruit have looked flat and formless. Maybe the colors in your flowers have appeared "chalky" or "muddy." Perhaps you've struggled to arrange a good still life in the first place! If these difficulties sound familiar, I'm excited to show you how to conquer these challenges and many more in this information-packed workshop. Learn how to identify and accurately capture the most subtle color changes. Learn how to make fruit and other objects look 3-D. And learn how to draw your viewer's eye from across the room with the 5 Principles for Powerful Paintings!
