ONLINE: Botanical Painting in Gouache

In this online class we will learn all about the media beloved by generations of artists and illustrators for its matte finish and velvety application. Gouache is an ideal medium for capturing natural subjects because it allows all the spontaneity of other water media while also providing the artist with the ability to paint over or “correct” mistakes. We’ll review the history of botanical painting and paint of a variety of flowers and plants. We’ll focus on color mixing and composition to create multiple completed paintings.

ONLINE: Landscape & Figurative Painting

Personalize and add visual interest to your landscape paintings by incorporating figures. This online class will demonstrate how to shoot photo references, utilize the experience of painting from life, create dynamic landscape compositions, and improve our painting skills in the studio. We will review the visual concepts of hue/value/chroma, and learn how to recognize any colors you wish to recreate from your photos and mix them with paint onto canvas. Instructor will demonstrate different techniques to insert figures with realistic scaling and lighting into your landscape references, including Photoshop, Adobe Sketch, or old-school vellum. We will cover composition and painting techniques to maximize the impact of loosely painted figures without overwhelming the landscape. During the course each student will paint several small studies in preparation for larger finished paintings that incorporate elements from our studies. 

Class will take place via weekly Zoom teleconference and will include lecture and demo, group question/answer and showcase of student work.  Additionally, time will be reserved for individual instruction and feedback during group Zoom sessions and follow-up individual sessions and/or email.  Each class will be recorded and available for later viewing.

ONLINE: Portrait Painting with Darren Kerr

Applying an academic approach, students will paint portraits from video and photo references and experiment with different painting styles.  We will examine and critique portrait examples from various artists, and incorporate what we have learned into our class paintings.  


Topics covered will include materials, paint application, facial anatomy and proportions, color theory and color matching, tone and edge control, choosing interesting poses and compositions, and developing our unique style.


Each class will begin with a group discussion where students show their work from the previous week, followed by a short instructor demo.  Then students will work on in-class, either from a video stream of a model from our guild, or from a photo reference of models from our classroom photo cache.  Students will receive instructor input during class, as well as the opportunity to schedule input from the instructor at a later time. Midway through each class we will go over an optional homework assignment to complement and reinforce the day’s lesson.

 

Class is still open for enrollment, late registrants have access to videos recorded from previous class meetings.
