Join artist, Sarah Siltala, in this 8-week class where she will share the modern materials and 21st century approach to create paintings using the time-tested indirect method inspired by Flemish and Venetian techniques. The classical indirect method makes it possible to paint realistic still lifes by separating all the different elements into individual steps. Drawing and composition, capturing correct value, and layering color are broken down separately so the painting evolves in a logical and easy to understand sequence. Students will practice glazing to create glowing, harmonious color in a still life. Learning about color and the properties of different oil paints, whether transparent or opaque, will help the artist achieve realistic effects and a luminous depth that cannot be attained in direct painting.

Please sign up early; class size is limited.
