If you want to paint with confidence, then this is the perfect class for you! In this class, we will find our way to achieving freedom and energy in our paintings by first approaching our subject in charcoal. By practicing a painterly approach to charcoal drawing, you will learn to tackle your work with organization and conviction – key ingredients for relaxed painting. This painterly drawing technique also translates readily to oil painting, so your drawing practice will directly inform and improve your painting. Students will learn to take their charcoal studies and render them into colorful and dramatic paintings. This fun and eye-opening approach can be applied to a wide variety of subjects: still life, portrait, or landscape. High quality photo reference will be provided for each class session, but students are also welcome to develop their own ideas to work on. The class will feature frequent instructor demonstrations in both charcoal and oil paint.
