The Design Process
Developing sketches from photos and life to use as planning tools for making good paintings

Value Studies
We'll take our sketches and decide on where the lights and darks are in our compositions

How to Handle the Paint
Learn how to determine the correct water to paint ratio, what kind of brush strokes can be made,
washes, dry brush and wet-into-wet application. With oils, understand the viscosity
and application of paint and mediums.

How to Mix Colors
We use a limited palette of warm and cool primary colors, plus a nuetral brown.
Using a limited palette gives us color harmony.

Demos, Paint Alongs & Critiques
I will demonstrate a topic and we will paint along to give you hands on experience.
We will also have periodic critiques so you get the feedback you need to improve.

We will work from still life set ups and landscape photographs.
