NEW!! SPECIAL WORKSHOP: PAINTING THE ESSEENCE OF THE SEA with Karen Blackwood
A successful painting is Alive! It evokes emotion and draws the viewer in. The choices you make will mean the difference between high art and low art. What is essential to the painting and what gets in the way of your feelings about the subject or the truth of the subject are important questions to ask. This two-day workshop will focus on what is essential in seascape painting and painting in general. Basic art principles will be demonstrated and discussed as well.
Karen will start the workshop in the studio with a morning demo. The rest of the first day, students will be working on value and design sketches and painting from their own past coastal plein air painting studies and or photo references. The following day will be outside plein air painting. Starting with a demo, Karen will show her plein air process. Students will then spend the day painting their own work from nature as Karen comes around to everyone for individual guidance. At the end of the last day we'll do an informal group critique.
Saturday & Sunday, June 8th and 9th from 10am-4pm.
Saturday in the studio and Sunday in plein air at Tod's Point, Greenwich -with the option of 2 studio days if the weekend is raining.
