Achieve the luminosity of a watercolor while using transparent oil paint and oil glazes that allow the white of your panel to shine through and illuminate your paintings. You will learn to use transparent and semi-transparent paint and subsequent glazing to create glowing luminous paintings in any subject matter. As we study glazing/layering techniques you will gain a stronger understanding of color theory as it relates to intentional color mixing and color and value relationships. You will also learn techniques in paint application for various effects, blending and creating textures. A flower image is provided for you to work on as a group or you can bring your own closeup of a flower/flower garden.

Composing, Lighting and Photographing a Still Life for Painting or Drawing Referencewith Judy Bates
One class Wednesday, March 13 • 1:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. • $50
In preparation for creating a still life using your own photograph as a reference for painting of drawing, learn to choose and arrange your objects in a way that creates dynamic and lively compositions that are anything but “still.” Bring 5-6 objects, fabrics, flowers, fruits, etc. along with your camera. iPad, iPhone, or other Smartphone or tablet, etc., are preferred, while any digital camera is fine. You will learn to light and create a strong and dynamic composition, with a focus on scale, light patterns, color and value as important compositional devices. We will also do some in-camera editing on your smartphone or tablet. Designing a still life takes a lot of thought and energy but it is exciting and is my favorite part of the creative process. Lighting and white backboards are provided. Class limited to 10 people. Use form at left to contact Judy with questions.register_button
