Many of you have told me that you find it challenging painting flowers. Or that you're afraid to paint them. That's a shame since they are so beautiful. A perfect painting subject! Join me for this 1-day workshop where we'll focus on a step-by-step approach to painting flowers that will make them no more challenging to paint than any other subject. It's all about shape, value, color and edges. We'll do a series of exercises, focusing on a variety of…

Hunters Point Shipyard, Horn Ave
San Francisco, CA 94124 United States

No matter what subject matter you're painting (landscape, still life, portrait) or what your reference is (painting from life in your studio, painting plein air or using photos), values and color are the two most important things you'll need to address. They're the two things that will really make a big difference in the quality of your painting. And they're two of the most challenging for newer painters. Join me in this 1-day workshop and let's spend a day practicing…

1-day Workshop: Key Elements of Plein Air Landscape Painting

August 1 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
McInnis Park Golf Center, 350 Smith Ranch Rd
San Rafael, CA 94903 United States

$80

You know the adage: "Value does all the work; color gets all the credit". I'd say value - and value design - in your painting play as important a role as composition. Let's focus on finding values in plein air! I'll start this class doing a short value sketch demo on paper, in order to establish the value design in a given scene. Each of you will do the same and we'll have a value "roadmap" for our paintings. The…

1-day Workshop: Painting With Gouache in the Landscape

August 15 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
TBD (San Francisco/Bay Area)
$80

For those who want to try out gouache in the landscape, here's an opportunity. Or if you'd rather use oils or acrylics, that's fine too. I'll work with you in whatever medium you choose. Gouache is a medium that I enjoy using because of it's fast drying properties and because I like the beautiful finish it produces on paper. For some reason, using gouache encourages me to loosen up...another reason I like it. And it's great to travel with! I'll…
