This workshop will cover the “basics” for the artist working in oils. Students will delve into techniques and tools, i.e., color, value, edges and paint quality, and their relationship to the aesthetic considerations of the surface. Concept, composition, the artist’s /painter’s psychology, and its effect on one’s canvas will be possible avenues of exploration. Students will work from the live model for this three day workshop (one night a week for three weeks). This will be a laid back workshop, students are welcome to B.Y.O. beer, wine, coffee, tea, etc.
