A Painterly Approach to Oils with Patricia Sorg

Painterly Vivid Color in Oil:

Thursday Mornings, 9:30am – 12:30pm, Starts soon…

emphasis of this course will be on how to think and see like a Painter, and how to capture the effects of light to create more powerful paintings using color and value.

With the natural order of the chromatic palette, students will learn to paint spontaneously with very loose, expressive brushstrokes, and to create drama and poetry in their paintings.  Close attention will be paid to design and orchestration of all the essential components of a painting.

Intermediate and advanced students only.

 

Oil Painting Fundamentals:

Thursday afternoons, 1:00pm – 4:00pm, Starts in January, 2018

“He who cannot respond to his emotions with some reasonable guidance is incapable of expressing himself in an artistic matter” – Edgar Payne

To accurately convey the feelings about a subject in a painting, it is necessary to understand the fundamentals. This class is designed to introduce the students to these concepts and principles to achieve a successful painting. Students will learn a solid foundation of these components: Value, composition, color, and orchestration.

This class will be excellent for beginners and intermediate or advanced students who need
to reinforce basics or who need to achieve a better understanding of the theory.

Thorough attention to color mixing will be emphasized. Students will work with a limited palette first, and then will move to an extended one.
