2-Day Weekend Intensive
Semi-Abstract Painting: Bridging Realism with Abstraction
This workshop is geared towards the painter looking to simplify their work, eliminate extraneous details, and emphasize the abstract elements.
We will work to bridge realism and abstraction, arriving at a semi-abstract style.
Day one will begin with a slide lecture and demo. Students will then complete a few smaller studies working from their own references or still-life set-ups (teacher will arrange these). The choice of subject matter is up to each student. Landscape, cityscape, figurative, or still-life.
Emphasis will be on two-value statements, shape, design, and slowly adding more information.
Day two will also begin with a slide lecture on color, edges, and marks. After which students will decide on one study to bring to more completion, working a bit larger.
Level: intermediate to advanced
Medium: Instructor will work in oil but open to all mediums
