The Maine Landscape
Oil / Pastel
Plein Air / Studio
September 20 - 24, 2010
Bob's fresh, informative workshops are an intensive period of work, study, and FUN that have been enthusiastically received by both beginner and advanced students.
The first day begins with a short lecture and demonstration emphasizing the simplicity of how a painting works and the procedures to create one. The entire painting process is covered, from the application of the medium, to achieving clean color, good value relationships and balanced compositions. Special attention will be placed on learning to see masses as opposed to line, and form rather than detail. Focus will also be on how to accurately simplify the colors and values of the main shapes since this is fundamental to any painting, whether one paints in the studio or on location. Techniques designed to complete "Alla Prima" paintings.
Bob works individually with each student at their easel and guides them at their own level and in their own style. Students may work in oils or pastels. Lots of painting time and individual attention. He will also provide tips on how to take photographs to be used creatively as painting subjects. "What is important to me, as a teacher, is to share what I’ve learned with my students." This workshop is for anyone interested in learning to develop creative, painterly paintings with clean, rich color and dynamic compositions.
Studio workshop start with a lecture and demonstration each day and participants paint in the afternoon.
Plein air workshops start the first morning with a short talk and on location demonstration. Participant paint all other mornings and afternoons. Critiques and demonstrations occur throughout the workshop.
All levels $650 per student
