The Art of Creating Vibrant Whites in Oils May 4 & 5 with Chris Brandley

In this fun, 2 day workshop, the focus will be on using methods to keep your whites vibrant and full of life, and how to prevent them from looking cold and chalky.  Emphasis will also be placed on color mixing, loose brushwork, and composition. Painting will be done in the “Alla Prima” style, or “wet into wet”, which results in a fresh, spontaneous look. For more information, please visit Chris Brandley Workshops.

Francys’ paintings have a unique style, elegance, and technique. She blends realism with impressionism, uses bright colors, and creates soft edges. Her glazing technique was first developed by the old masters. She is a well-known demonstrator and workshop instructor in the North Texas area.

Artist’s Statement

 “Words, strung like pearls on a page paint a picture. Music tells the soul a story. Colours and shapes on a canvas make the heart sing. Three doors into a magical and lovely place that God’s gift, imagination, allows us to enter. As a child I strolled at will through these doors and lived in that place. As I “grew up”, I never left it. 

In 1977 God gave me another gift in the person of artist Dick Turner. Dick gave a fortunate few the tools needed in order to use paint and canvas to take others into that world of beauty and peace. A world that might catch at your imagination and cause you to ask, “What if…..”

From the time I was a small girl I knew I would be an artist.  I just didn’t know what kind.  I read book after book about painters, musicians, dancers, and writers.  Then in 1977, through the chance meeting with artist Dick Turner, I knew that I too would be a painter.

I immersed myself, soul and body, in that pursuit.  I studied with Dick from 1977 until 1982, taking 5 and 6 classes a week at his private art school in Houston.  I have also received instruction from William Reese, William Henry Earle, Carolyn Anderson, Greg Kreutz, Roberta Carter Clark, Ray Vinella, Jean Chambers, Scott Burdick and Daniel Greene.

I also teach in my home studio and am available for club demonstrations in the Dallas metroplex area.
