    This workshop is designed to move artists forward in their painting journey. Students will be encouraged to stretch and express themselves in a new way, completing one fresh, all prima painting in each of the four days. We will be working from still life set ups of luscious, exotic florals, encouraging spontaneity that is energizing and fun! Bold, direct painting, emphasizing form and value shifts and directional light will be the focus. Cynthia will start each day with a demonstration focusing on a different topic or technique (light, composition, brushwork). The rest of the instruction will be individual throughout each day. A positive group review of students’ work will wind up the workshop with a wonderful display of progress made by everyone. Some painting experience is helpful.

    Please sign up early; class size is limited to 12 students.

     A portrait can be more than a picture with a likeness. Instead of just creating a solid shape with information designating hair, eyes, nose, etc., it’s possible to see the painting as made up of visual elements – line, shape, value, and color – all in a relationship within the space of the canvas. This approach is not just about learning to “paint outside the lines,” but also about learning to see the information in a new and different way.  My workshop is based on years of experience teaching others how to recognize patterns, make comparisons, and interpret edges, color temperature, and shapes. There will be demonstrations, discussion, and presentations. This workshop is for artists interested in enhancing their drawing and painting skills, while also learning how to approach a painting in a more creative way. Instruction will be in oils and the class is for the intermediate to advanced painters. Pastels, water-based oils, and acrylics are permissible.

    Please sign up early; class size is limited.
