Lesson: OCAL Painting Fabric

Are you looking to further your oil or acrylic painting ability? Then this is the online 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.
This in person 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. The primary subject will be architecture. Painting fabric can be challenging. However, it can greatly assist an artist in learning about process and application. We will utilize a real fabric still life for inspiration. Along with color mixing, one goal of instruction will address the importance of creating a sketch and dynamic composition in paint. 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.”

Neurographic Art was created in 2004 by a Russian psychologist.

He found that when we draw using neurographic algorithms it helps us engage the neurons of

the brain. This creative approach to drawing helps you find inner peace and transforms stress

to calmness. During this class you will learn to create beautiful patterns using a circle and curved lines.

Watercolor is used to add color and depth to the drawing. It’s fun, easy and relaxing.

Fresh flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for the beginning of this dynamic workshop – progressing to the head and figure. Through a series of fun painting exercises, students will develop a more loose and natural approach – giving them an opportunity to be more spontaneous and expressive in their paintings. In our approach to learning how to interpret the head and figure, we will learn to express translucent flesh tones, while focusing on the gesture of the person. Painting children will also be covered. Although we will work primarily from photos, we may have an opportunity to work from a model for a short period, so bring your
camera! Besides class demonstrations throughout the workshop, Janet will work individually with each person also, making sure they understand the painting concepts – a truly “hands on” experience. Focusing on discovering how to control and making dynamic color, design and expression, we will also have “Show and Tell” – an opportunity to share and see how we exceed in our expectations!!!

Looking at watercolor as a “painting material” and not just as a “watery color”, we will learn to control the paint and not let the paint control itself. Emphasis will be on composition and value. We will use a rich application of color, going from a thin “tea” mixture to a more saturated application. Color mixing and application will be a large part of the workshop. Students will work from photographs or a still life arrangement.
