Oil Painting: Create Painterly Impressions
August 18 - August 24
In this class, you’ll create painterly impressions from your own photos or from life. Join Frankie in this exciting week of challenging exercises that will ignite your creative thinking. Explore new ways of interpreting your references and exciting your audience. Combine your photos to make stronger designs and exaggerate the use of color. Realize what it takes to catch the attention of the viewer. Frankie will help you create paintings that truly stand out. Understand more about the mystery of edges, composition and color harmony. You will do all of this, yet still allow your individual personality to be recognizable in every brush stroke.
Be ready to cover a lot of canvas! Frankie believes that more is learned through many small pieces than by laboring over large works. You will receive plenty of one-on-one instruction and individual demonstrations from Frankie, as needed.
