“I sincerely can’t remember a more powerful learning experience in my 30 years of painting. You have inspired me and lit a fire.” — Janeen Schissler
THE COLOR OF LIGHT 2
A continuation of The Color of Light, this class begins with a review of principles previously covered, including optical mixing of layered color, essential elements of strong composition and the effects of light. We will also focus on the later stages of painting, learning to harmonize color masses while developing the ability to really see and mix color, especially those that are nuanced and subtle. Finally, we will explore the finishing touches that turn paintings into personal statements.
Painting from costumed models and still life, plein air artists will benefit from in-studio projects that solidify valuable principles needed for outdoor painting. Demonstrations, lectures and a slide show are designed to give students tools to achieve intensely beautiful color.
“Of all the valuable information you provided us, for me the most valuable was what you had to say about learning to think like an artist. “ — Jim McIntyre
