I'll be doing a Two Day Beginning to Intermediate oil painting workshop. We'll be painting from still life set ups beginning with black and white paint then moving on to color using a limited palette of three colors and white.
We'll do small exercises over the two days working small and concentrating on DRAWING then VALUE then COLOR - the stages of a painting.
I'll focus on what I think is the most important part of a good painting, VALUES or the relationship of lights to darks. More than color, value is probably the single most important element of a great painting and it's the easiest to fix. I know it's hard to believe but if you're having problems with color it's usually a design or a value issue not a color problem. True fact!
