Learning to Simplify, New June Workshop......



NEW: Make sure to bring 2 9x12 panels instead of 2 8x10 but if you've already bought them that's fine. Also a sketchpad 9x12 instead of 8x10. The bigger 9x12 just gives us a little more room to work on.

Some more workshop photos from Billie Rinaldi who snapped some while everyone was painting during the previous workshop. Everyone had a great time painting that I didn't get enough photo's of the group. Me in the photo on the left in green hat talking to a fellow painter while doing a demo and his daughter in the middle with her painting of the surf. Right, photo of an easel setup and study of the waves.

This is a two part course and it's required that you take both sessions.
The fee is $60 for the course.

We will be working in the Gallery the whole day. First will work on some simple color charts using a limited palette. Then will focus on how to simplify what's to be painted and finally some studies using oil paint setting the ground for doing some Plein Air Painting at the next session. I'll give some assignments to help prepare for the next session.
