Recording Of Our Virtual Still Life Workshop From March 2021

Master Painting In Your Own Studio

Reignite your passion for painting as you connect with beauty again. In a series of online workshops, our experienced instructors cover all subject matter in comprehensive demonstrations with an active Q & A over Zoom.

Day1: Bonus Day – How We Work

We filmed this day especially for all those people who have questions about the materials we use. As well, you will see demonstrations on making form and achieving brush control. This way you will have all these questions out of the way so you can just watch and enjoy the workshop and discover what you really want to know about painting a still life.

Stacy gives her delightful explanations of how to set up a palette with the colors we use, what mediums we paint with and what surfaces we paint on and much more. This video will make you more confident in understanding the basics.

Day2: Start the Finish

In demonstrations done from existing paintings, each of these artists give you an idea of how each painting was started according to the visual idea. You will be able to see how it affects the composition, and how to finish a painting by understanding the start. This should make beginning a painting with a concept seem possible.

Day3: Exploring Composition

Jackie paints an exquisite set up with camellia buds and hydrangea from her new garden in Oregon. You’ll watch as Jackie gaily lays on paint and develops her composition from beginning to end, capturing the alizarin buds and the graceful sprig of white hydrangea. You’ll learn about painting a design on a white pot, grapes, flowers, leaves and more.

Day 4: How to Handle A Light Background

Sherrie starts this stunning demo of a pair of Indian moccasins and a Spanish retablo with an unusual composition. You will see how, toward the end of the painting, Sherrie rethinks the size and placement. You’ll find out how important this decision is and the part it plays in achieving the visual idea she is seeking. Also, the design includes painting darker objects against a lighter background, as well as using color and light to make an object come forward. You will also learn about making objects recede and advance on a surface.

Day 5: The Beauty of Space

David shows how a little bit of “something” can balance a “lot of nothing” in this compelling use of space on a canvas. Starting with the darks, the painting mysteriously evolves, and before you know it, the whole concept is there! In David’s minimalist way, he shows how little is needed to make the viewer see the visual idea. That is the magic that he will share with you as the painting unfolds.
