Date: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, October 1-3, 2021
Time: 9:30am - 4:30pm PST
Instructor: Sarah Sedwick
Paint Looser and more confidently during this three-day workshop with Oregon artist Sarah Sedwick! Take a step-by step approach to alla prima oil painting, from black-and-white studies to brilliant color. Build a beautiful composition with live and movement, and get a new perspective on the still life. Instead of struggling with overworking your paintings, practice STOPPING SOONER to keep the fresness you crave in your work!
Working with a split-primary palette of six colors and white, you'll learn Sarah's favorite painting exercises to warm up for a studio day, get back into the groove after some time away from the easel, or simply shake things up! Explore how limitations can set you free, creating a painting in 20 brushstrokes, and another in 20 minutes. Learn the fundamentals of good design, and walk step-by-step through Sarah's alla prima process, creating a dynamic still life from start to finish!
Sarah will demonstrate, and work with each student individually. Instruction is in oils, and arylics are welcome - particularly Open acrylics, that stay wet longer.
All levels welcome, age 15 and above.
