This four-hour workshop will present a simplified approach to a limited palette still life, focusing on movement in composition and using value to create emphasis.
Making a great painting doesn’t need to be complicated. In this pop-up mini workshop, we will discuss the keys to unlocking an impactful painting, from setting up a cohesive composition to identifying forms, laying down a framework, and understanding color and value. We will employ the elegant clarity of a four-color limited palette to create a harmonious still life. This method is a great way to improve your understanding of color theory and form.
We will begin the day setting up our palettes, followed by a painting demo by our instructor Darcy, before beginning our own paintings. Hands-on, individual attention as well as group instruction will be given throughout.
Members $100 / non-members $125
