Paint with an Understanding of the Masters

Paint with an Understanding of the Masters

Robert Johnson is an OPA Master. His workshop in oils will focus on developing an understanding of the essential elements of painting that have been passed on through the centuries from teacher to student, master to apprentice, and artist to artist. Brush strokes will be heavily emphasized as a means to depict form, achieve expressive power, and maintain a painting’s feeling of spontaneity and life. Robert will teach the importance of an understanding of values, edges, light, and color to create a powerful and memorable painting. Still-life, florals, and the portrait will be the subject matter of the workshop and students can feel free to choose subject or subjects they wish to paint. Robert will demonstrate the still life and portrait. The workshop is open to all levels. www.robertjohnsonart.com
