This week in the studio…

… I am finalizing lesson plans for the next online class that begins next week Thursday, May 2nd. This class is all about learning how to make dynamic paintings by highlighting the important color passages with lesson on:

  • How glowing color is supported with partnering grays
  • How to get the most out of your darks
  • How to use different whites for subtle but powerful results
  • How to make color pulsate with simultaneous contrast.

This class also includes an extra pre-class lesson and assignment, Using the Color Wheel to Establish Your Paint Palette (which is available for free on my website). I am offering this extra class because knowing the color wheel intimately will help in making the most of the lessons in this upcoming class.

…I am re-working this painting for an exhibition next month at the Workhouse Arts Center, where I am a featured artist and will have 8-12 still-life paintings on display in the Vulcan Gallery of Building 16.

The reception will be held on the second Saturday of May, May 11th from 6 to 9pm.
