A solid composition and value structure, harmonious color, a variety of edges – this catches the viewer’s eye from across the room. Poetic expression and brushwork cause the viewer to linger. This workshop deals with both: the five elements of a painting – Composition, Values, Color, Edges and Detail – and poetic, creative approaches to block-ins and brushwork. Whether you are new to painting, or you’ve been painting for years, this class has something for everyone. This workshop is for acrylic, oil and pastel painters, and each day begins with a teaching and demonstration, then the participants can work on their own painting with plenty of one-on-one instruction.
