what an amazing 2 days spent collaborative painting with our first class of ARTISTRY students
Stephen and i couldn't be more different in our stylistic approaches to art, but together we make one hell of a team! the artwork produced this weekend was nothing short of spectacular.
i had to blog today and boast about this 2-day, intimate workshop experience and share several photos of the students work in various stages. may just be the best event yet!
this is a "tag-team" event where i begin by teaching you how to build the foundation of the piece by incorporating my love of color, mixed-media and free-spirited style. we work on a small canvas first (the learning canvas so to speak), building color confidence, blending, dripping and layering and then take those skills to the large 3' x 4' canvas.
then Stephen, takes the lead with his fine art and technical drawing skills and teaches you how to "draw what you see". building an understanding of scale, shape and proportion he guides you through each step of the drawing process, first practicing the grid method on paper, then on your practice canvas. you then learn how to see and paint shadows, layer glazes and add contrast, while allowing the colors in your first layer to show through.
SO FRICKEN COOL!
mark your calendars, these ARTISTRY collaborative events only allow 10 students and are already filling

(the first ARTISTRY event is not a pre-requisite for the second one. they can be done independently of each other, in any order)
