Join me online for two weekends in August for a new workshop focused solely on tonal painting in oils! We'll take a good look at all the various materials you'll need to navigate as an oil painter, discuss how to go from a "drawing" mindset to one that champions "painting", break down the full value scale and make practical use of it as you develop your painting in three distinct stages, and further develop our understanding of observational painting as we refine our work with attention to the subtleties of "temperature".
The first weekend, the 13th & 14th, we'll focus on the "start" and work our way into a considered "middle game" with a focus on clear measured proportions, a dynamic design, a clear tonal hierarchy that spans the full value range, and the development of greater material facility.
The second weekend, the 20th & 21st, we'll focus on bringing our painting to a resolved state that capitalizes on all of our hard-earned efforts. We'll take a good look at edge hierarchy, in-between value shifts, and the refinement of a "composition". We'll also introduce an optional avenue of "temperature" dynamics which will be a solid way to level up the subtlety in our paintings!
We'll be using Zoom to meet live for those two weekends, and the recordings will be available to all workshop participants indefinitely.
Once your payment is received, you'll get an email from me within a day with instructions on how to join our workshop page and gain access to the materials list, our workshop itinerary, and other resources that I hope you'll enjoy and find useful!
