Indirect oil painting methods work beautifully to breathe new life into old or not so loved work. Lightly sanding and beginning again with a foundation already in place is a great way to use new directions to follow. In this 2 day workshop we will work from pieces previously started and continue with a new composition from there.
I will bring my own painting to "reimagine" and will share my favorite techniques that can be applied to any genre of painting. Feel free to bring several pieces to work on.
Acrylic painters are also welcome.
How to craft a well-designed piece
Working with textural elements to enhance the composition
Understanding the power of color harmony to create an emotional impact
Interpreting source materials rather than copying them literally
This workshop is geared toward experienced painters as the fundamentals of painting will not be covered.
