In this exciting workshop, students will explore painting techniques for capturing the luminous qualities of light in their work. Capturing the beauty of light through studying temperatures of light and shadow, visual movement and value/color relationship will  be demonstrated daily.  The still life, landscape, skyscape and architectural subjects  will be in focus as well as adding figures in a painting. As a Master in the American Impressionist Society, Carr will be emphasizing the “how tos” in achieving dynamic and impressionistic paintings using painterly brushwork in both watercolor and acrylic. Massing and organizing darks and lights, importance of drawing and the value sketch, atmospheric and linear perspective will also be covered. Through individual instruction, observing daily demonstrations and critiques, students will develop a personal style in artistic approaches as well as gaining inspiration and enthusiasm for future paintings. Come and enjoy! Book: “Seeing the Light, an artist’s guide”, North Light pub., Betty Carr.
