SIGN UP

Beginner and advanced painters alike are often overwhelmed by "where to start" in a painting.  Many feel they need to paint everything they see, which is a daunting task. One of the most important aspects of painting is learning how to simplify  - from the start.

If you feel that you are concentrating too much on small details at the expense of a bolder, more dramatic outcome, this step-by-step workshop will help you to learn what to paint and more importantly, what to leave out. In this workshop you will learn how to loosen up and apply your paint in a gestural, painterly manner.

You will practice using bigger brushes and ample paint. We will take color to new unexpected places by translating color to values and departing from realism. Timed exercises will be given to learn how to work more quickly and efficiently. Join us for several days of instruction and training - this may open the door to an exciting new level of creativity and artistic expression. The workshop is open to acrylic and oil painters. Pastel and Watercolor painters are welcome although painting demonstrations will be in acrylics.

The workshop begins with with a full explanation of materials, methods and a step-by-step painting demonstration

You will learn and practice how to:

  • see and simplify values
  • create a value sketch as a “roadmap” to a successful painting
  • translate values into colors
  • simplify - knowing what detail is important and what's not
  • paint with fewer strokes for a bolder look
  • work with thicker paint and bigger brushes
  • keep colors clean and bright
  • learn the importance of greys for color unity
  • get energetic, gestural brushwork
  • and much more

Do you have a color "strategy" before you start a painting, or do you simply hope the color will work out in the end? Have you ever wished you had more freedom with color?  

Color is one of the most important elements in the success of your painting.  Many painters feel bound by the colors they see, which can lead to predictable paintings that lack drama, no matter how well they are painted. It's important to learn how to harness the power of color and use it to communicate your artistic vision.

In this 3 hour workshop,  learn how "less is more" in your palette for good color harmony, and learn to work with the colors of your choice.

Patti Mollica, author of "Color Theory, an Essential Guide to Color" will be teaching the strategy behind working with color schemes and pushing color choices to the next level. If you are ready to embark upon new level of color exploration, don't miss this workshop! Suitable for all levels and media - acrylic, oils, pastel, watercolor, etc.
