Large Abstract Feb 2019We have two exciting classes coming up this weekend.  On Friday, we are holding the Large Abstract Class again.  Always a popular one especially if you have a large space that needs a piece of art or a pop of color.  In the past many beautiful pieces have be created.  We have space for three more painters so click here and register now!

Expressive Set-up 4And then on Sunday we are offering our first Masters Class.  These classes emphasize a start to finish painting working for a still life set-up.  We’ll have flowers and fruit set up for you to work from…finding the look that suits your aesthetic.  This will be a little longer class and feature more instruction.  Click here for more info and to register.  Just three spaces left in this one too!.

We have tons of fun with Paint Parties but some people have asked to take it a step above…in other words, they want to learn more rather than just copy the follow along paint party image.  With that in mind we are introducing the Masters Class.  Masters Class will provide more detailed information and teach techniques for those who want to not only paint but improve their skills. In our first session we will learn to develop a painting from a live set-up to create an Expressive Still Life. The set-up will include fruits and flowers….according to what is available at the time. (These photos show some of what we may have that day.) Click here to register and join us on Sunday afternoon, February 23rd from 1-5 pm to take your art to the next level.

We will be painting this still life with oranges at a Paint Party on Friday, March 1st at 6 pm. This one was done with a grey scale underpainting.  We won’t necessarily work it this way at the paint party but it’s a good exercise that helps with darks and lights in painting.  You can see the process above.  Click here to register and for more info.

20170302_221511.jpgI often get asked why I don’t post my paintings along with the paintings that the people at Paint Parties do while at The Studio.  The answer is that I don’t often finish mine!  I am usually walking around helping others put the finishing touches on their work to be sure they are satisfied with them before we wrap up the party.  From time to time I get back to my canvas to finish up.  I did in the case of the Famous  Painter Party this week because I really like the Piet Mondrian still life that we chose to do.  Here is how my painting turned out.  I love the complementary blue and orange colors.
