Oil Floral Still Life
July 18 - 22, 9:30am - 4:30pm
Instructor: Christopher Pierce
Members: $395, Non-members: $420
Students in this workshop will learn about painting beautiful floral still lifes. Emphasis will be on aspects that make up a strong painting including color, color values, composition, and techniques on how to apply paint in a fresh, lush, and subtle manner. Also stressed will be the importance of setting up and composing a still life and learning how the effects of good lighting can strengthen a painting.
This year the workshop will not only focus on painting still lifes and flowers from natural light, but will also include how to use unsuspected objects and/or arrangements to help make the paintings have a narrative composition and edge.
Students should be able to gain confidence and appreciate individuality of style from this workshop. Individual attention is stressed. The workshop is for painters who have had some drawing and oil painting experience.
