online: THE BACKLIT STILL LIFE 1&2 

Offered by Winslow Art Center via Zoom. Please click here for current listings. 

In painting we use color and value to show how light describes nature. Learning to understand various lighting phenomena gives us more freedom in choosing how we paint the objects we see, rather than having to look to nature for every decision.
In this workshop we will study the phenomenon of backlighting, where the light source is behind the object. Start with what you do know and gain skills by doing exercises that isolate different aspects of painting. Fun and informative, with loads of practical take-home principles.



 

online: THE FIGURE IN CONTEXT

A 5-week class starting April 8, hosted by Winslow Art Center via Zoom.

Very Exciting Class. Designing a painting of one or more people, with the context being an integral part of the picture. Faces and gesture. Intentional color schemes. Application of design principles. Using multiple reference images to create a cohesive result. Tangents on creative process. Occasional poetry. Plan on doing several small studies and assignments plus one or two larger works during the term.
