Paint looser and more confidently during this three-day workshop with Oregon artist Sarah Sedwick! Take a step-by-step approach to alla prima oil painting, from black-and-white studies to brilliant and colorful creations. Build a beautiful composition with life and movement, get a new perspective on the still life, and learn tips for bringing inspiration to your home studio practice. 

Students will also delve into the fundamentals of good design, creating black and white oil studies to plan compositions that work. Emphasis will be placed on working from the general to the specific - big value shapes first, small details later.

Using a split-primary palette as the color foundation - two reds, two yellows, and two blues - students will do quick, fun exercises to focus on loosening up their brushwork before creating a finished piece. Sarah will demonstrate and work with each student individually. Painters of all levels are welcome, with instruction being in oils.
