February Theme: Playing with Values
In this demonstration we will be looking at source material and discussing how to break it down into simple values and shapes. By understanding how the values relate to one another and how they express the shapes we can then create a sketch or painting.
The 2022 series will be similar to last year. For those that participated last year, Steve is always including new nuggets of information and suggestions!
You will be emailed Zoom meeting instructions at least 1 day before the start of the class. This email will include a unique URL and your meeting code.
Classes/Workshops/Demos that do not meet enrollment minimums will be cancelled two days prior to the class start date.
Monthly schedule (register each month)
February 12 - Planning with Values
In this demonstration I will show how to use wet-on-wet painting techniques to achieve different effects.
March 12 - Sketching Fast and Loose
This demonstration will show how I gather information through quick sketches that I later use in finished paintings.
April 9 - Studio Painting
Utilizing sketchbooks, quick sketches, and motivating music, I will demonstrate a studio painting, start-to-finish.
May 14- Adding Figures to Paintings
This demonstration will be devoted to how I add figures to my cityscape and waterscape paintings. (We wrote an article about this for the Summer 2020 Issue of The Artist, that people will be able to access from our website if they wish.)
June 11- Using Color in Unexpected Ways
I will demonstrate how I used colors that differ from what is in the actual scene I’m painting or from what we would normally expect.
