In this workshop, Joseph will guide students through his process for constructing a painting in the studio setting. The workshop will be structured to show the various phases a painting goes through from conception to completion. Joseph will guide students in a step-by-step process that encompasses the proper use of materials. He will speak on the proper use of photo reference, how to develop a concept as a tool for storytelling, as well as the technical challenges on how to compose and design a painting. Joseph will work one-on-one, as well as paint along with students in order to demonstrate his process. Students will primarily work from appropriate photographs provided by the instructor, each working in the same process as Joseph does in his studio setting. The goal of the workshop is to complete one to two full-sized paintings within the week. A class critique will be given on the final afternoon.
