Creating Expressive Landscapes From Concept To Canvas: January 26 - 29, 2017

January 26 – 29, 2017

The workshop is currently full. To add your name to the waitlist in case a space becomes available, just click the button below.

Wonder how to create painterly expressive landscapes while keeping your color fresh and vibrant? What about how to paint using alla prima techniques so that you can quickly capture light and form? Have you wanted to learn about painting with a palette knife but been afraid to try on your own?

Then join me for this 3-day studio painting workshop!

The workshop begins Thursday evening with a wine & cheese introduction and brief lecture followed by three full painting days where I’ll walk you through my process for creating dynamic, expressive paintings filled with color.

During our time together we’ll focus on developing strong landscape compositions by organizing value patterns and masses (before you even pick up a brush), painting wet-into-wet without dulling the intensity of your color, and finishing a painting in an afternoon using painting knives to speed up that process.

Space is limited so register early!

All levels welcome, beginner to professional. The workshop includes demos, short exercises, gentle group critiques, and, with a very limited enrollment, plenty of personal attention from the instructor. Workshop participants will be encouraged to work quickly and produce at least three paintings over the three day workshop. Please note that this is not a plein air workshop and all sessions will be conducted indoors since January can be very cold, even in South Carolina.

Price: $475. Workshop is full.
