The basis of strong painting comes from painting from life, designing beautifully simplified shapes in their correct values. We will paint from the clothed model, with a beautiful setting at Los Poblanos Inn & Organic Farm, concentrating on designing the entire composition in relation to the figure. We will use brush and palette knife, progressing from five-minute to one-hour poses. This class will benefit the beginner as well as the long-time professional.
Michelle Chrisman will help you improve your use of oil paint and teach you how to quickly see and paint with an emphasis on using color to create the effects of light and value. Learn to create form with color notes and learn how to see and paint light. Michelle will do demos throughout the workshop as well as provide plenty of individual instruction. This class will jolt you into “Level 2” painting- seeing as an artist, the language of the visual world.
