February 13th Monochromatic Painting OCAL
Are you looking to further your oil or acrylic painting ability? Then this is the in person painting class for you! As a long time, professional painter and fine art educator, David holds a plentiful amount of experience in producing and teaching various styles of painting. Regardless of your amount of experience, desired painting style, or subject preference, this class will assist in your growth as a painter and an artist. The class will begin with an introduction and a brief Power Point. Ultimately, this class will guide you step by step through the stages of developing a painting. Along with color mixing, one goal of instruction will address the importance of creating a sketch and dynamic composition in paint. Each student will follow teacher lead instruction that will focus on painting a simple still using just tints, tones, and shades with one hue. Given the time limit and the nature of the class, we will primarily be working in “Alla Prima.” This term literally means working wet on wet. Finally, instruction will cover the various layers of “building up” a painting to reach the end goal. Recommended canvas size should be around 9” x 12” up to 16” x 20.”
