Supply List
Allison Summer- Supply List recommended

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 you can bring your own, keeping the composition simple (about four or less 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!
