Stuart’s workshop takes you on a path of discovery of your own resources as a painter. With the focus on a few paramount concepts and by means of powerful tools, one learns that the key to painting lies in asking the right questions. From the technical (where is the light, what shape is the light, what temperature is the shadow…), to the gestalt (what can I do without, what is missing, how does it feel), to the philosophical (what should I paint and why should i), to the existential (what is the meaning). 'I feel like I went hoping for a fish and I came back with a fishing rod.'
