We will cover the fundamentals of color and then explore the basics to their fullest extent. A beautiful painting can be created with the simplest or the most complex color scheme, once you know the rules behind how we see color. If you’re a beginning painter this will be an excellent place to start your journey, and if you’re more experienced this will be a great way to freshen up your skills and eliminate less-useful habits.

Drawing for Painting Workshop, October 5th – October 7th, 2018:

Hosted by the Big Sky Arts Council

  • Location: Big Sky, Montana
  • Media: Oil Painting
  • Skill Levels: All

Good preparation makes for a good painting, and drawing is a big part of that process! Rather than focusing on creating perfect drawings, this will be a practical approach encompassing composition, simple but beautiful shapes, accurate proportions, and values. We will learn about positive and negative spaces, contrast, and how to lead the viewer’s eye – as well as a few tips and tricks to make drawing faster and easier! We will work on larger drawings as well as smaller thumbnails and studies, all building toward the skills that will strengthen your paintings.

More information coming soon!
