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 workshop has something for everyone. This acrylic & oil workshop begins each day with a short teaching and demonstration, then the participants can work on their own painting with plenty of one-on-one instruction.
