Learn to create beautiful, dramatic and moody still life paintings. The emphasis is going to be on composition, correct values, color temperature and edges. There will be short demos and plenty of individual attention throughout the three-day workshop. Photo references are going to be provided or students can bring their own, keeping the composition simple (four or fewer objects) with a strong light contrast. Participants will be encouraged to interpret rather than replicate a photo, using vibrant brush marks, tools, imagination and creativity. We’ll have fun and be inspired!
