Concept and Experience
Delve into the foundations of composition and color to make successful paintings in any medium. Whether you are a seasoned painter or just beginning, this workshop will break down the planning phase and give you the confidence to take contorl of the design, color, and application of pain within your work.
Each day's focus will be related to a morning lecture and demonstration, including composition, cropping, viewpoint, edge, color theory, and a limited palette. Working from photo references and still life setups, complete a series of exploratory exercises and small paintings.
Open to all levels and paint media.
For Kathy Hirsh, it always begins with color; luscious, subtle, vibrant, complex color. In both oil and pastel, she starts her paintings with an abstract underpinning of color and works to find the delicate balance between the abstract and representational. Kathy's process is visible and apparent; with playful marks and brushstrokes filling the surfaces of each piece. Her work has been featured in The Artist Magazine, exhibited in shows on the national and international level, and is included in private collections throughout the world.
