"For Me From Karen" 8" square, a study done in Golden Open and Heavy Body Acrylics on a canvasboard, demonstrating the depth of color in light and dark values. Original painting not for sale.
Tomorrow I kick off my first ever day long painting workshop. I'll take 14 students from the Anchor Bay Artists Guild on an all-day painting marathon! I am really looking forward to this - hope everyone eats their Wheaties!!
I'll introduce basic color theory, demonstrate techniques for mixing lively and harmonious color, and show them how to paint with loose, dynamic brush-strokes. I plan on lots of laughter mixed in with the content.
One of the exercises we'll do involves learning to see nuanced color in light and dark objects - and this little study I completed is the perfect example of whites not being white and blacks not being black.
Wanna join us? Tomorrow's class is full, but I'm teachingthe same material next Saturday at the Orion Art Center (Lake Orion, Michigan). Call them - 248-693-4986 - to complete your registration and get a supplies list.
And, yes, I WILL be taking this show on the road. Details are getting worked out, but if you are interested, pleaseshoot me a note so that I can keep you informed!
Thanks for sharing my artwork with your friends and family.
And enjoy the weekend!
