This Oil painting workshop takes place at the new state of the art, multi-generational center, “The REC”, right off main street in Historic Grapevine. The room we will be in has big windows surrounded by beautiful, inspiring scenery.
Our 2 days together will include step by step demonstrations, one on one individual easel time, and fun exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings.
I use the “Alla Prima” method of painting (working wet into wet) and I will teach you how to layer with transparent and opaque oils, and how to keep your paints from getting muddy. We will work on technique, color mixing, composition, light, and brush strokes. Students will learn to see “Impressionistically” and explore to ability to “suggest” rather than “render” the subject.
Come prepared to have a relaxing, fun-filled learning experience. This class is for all levels of painting from beginners to advanced! it is designed to help you take your painting to the next level.
*There are plenty of nearby restaurants, or bring your lunch and eat in the beautiful courtyard outside the classroom!
