For the second and final in-person workshop of the 2021 season, we are going with a VERY summery theme! Grab your kayak, canoe, or row boat: by the end of this workshop, it will be peacefully floating in your canvas!
This acrylic painting class will go through the methods of depicting small watercraft over the blue-ness of a lake (or a pond, or maybe a river). There are many fun things to explore with this subject: shapes, textures, and bright colors of your painted vessel; expressive ripples; horizon with land; and of course, the sky.
In this 3.5 hour workshop we will interpret reference photos by first building our individual compositions. Then, layer by layer, you will depict your object, giving it light and shadow and making “pop” from the background, and learn to define water texture. You will create your piece while following artist’s instructions (that’s me!) as she paints in front of you, explaining the process step-by-step. As it always goes with my classes, you will be encouraged to create your very own unique creation, instead of merely copying a demo painting. (No previous painting experience is required to attend this workshop).
Canvas size for this workshop will be 11×14
Maximum class size – 8 people
