Daily Painting Workshop

Daily Painting: it’s a great way to motivate yourself and produce sellable work! Each day of this 3-day workshop will have a different focus, in addition to generous time to paint.  Day 1: Introduction, materials, working no larger than 5×7 or 6×6; painting a still life from direct observation. Day 2: Scaling and cropping; working off prints vs. working off of a computer screen. Day 3: Marketing: eBay, etsy, DPW, blog, Facebook.  Students may work in any color-based medium (not graphite or charcoal). Previous experience in the student’s chosen medium is recommended.  Canvas board or stretched canvas  suggested for oil and acrylic; paper (for pastel, colored pencil or watercolor) should be larger to allow for a border. Ski can suggest materials. Bring a lunch!

Painting With Oil

(and Other Media)

Whether you're a beginner looking to develop good habits or someone more experienced looking to break some 

bad ones, this class can help. While demystifying the whole oil painting process, you'll work from direct 

observation to help develop greater hand-to-eye coordination. Basically, see it, paint it. You will also be 

brought, step-by-step through:

Methods of color mixing
Making form by blending
Many of the do's and don't's of composition
Simple yet effective ways for moving paint around your canvas

You'll also be given access to online reference as part of the class.

Remember, oil painting is a simple process but not necessarily an easy one. Nothing worthwhile ever is.
