At the start of each class I will provide a short demonstration lasting 30 minutes. I will show you how I simplify my subject matter, in order to say more with less. I will discuss my palette, the how's and why's' of my chosen composition and give you my thoughts and methods for blocking in and painting the biggest shapes first. Then I will work towards smaller shapes and adding suggested detail in order to satisfy the viewer. I will emphasize important plein air concepts for interpreting a photo in order to infuse it with the feeling of outdoor light and atmosphere. I will be demonstrating the direct method of alla prima (all in one go). Then I will help you to paint in this manner in order to gain speed and confidence and to get expressive brushwork and a feeling of spontaneity in your work.
The link to our supply list below is only a suggested list. If you have a palette of colors, a medium and a supply of brushes that is working for you, then by all means, you are welcome to bring what you like. I do highly recommend a warm and cool tube each of Red, Yellow and Blue.
