The painted still life tells a story through the composition and the elements represented, requiring a balance of spontaneity and accuracy, a perfect subject to practice adding energy and excitement to all your paintings. Learn about choosing a subject, composition, values, color temperature, simplification, how to start, and when to stop. Each day will include a full demonstration followed by opportunities to create multiple paintings, with frequent one-on-one instruction.

The Costumed Figure in Oil with with Melinda Borysevicz

February 3, 2023February 5, 2023 Jepson Center

What a person wears tells a story. From the choice of specific attire, colors, accessories, and fabrics to the way in which someone inhabits their clothes (comfortably, stiffly, self-consciously …), we find clues that chronicle the nature of the person in front of us, both on the superficial societal level and on the deeper psychological level. In this workshop, we’ll be working on one long pose with an elegantly dressed model (with a twist!) to find/create their story.
