Daylight300

This vibrant online class explores abstraction with multiple layers and multiple media techniques.  Oil, cold wax, pigment sticks and collage converse on a variety of surfaces, emphasizing unity of design, texture and color.  We  work with a combination of both dry & wet media, including soft pastels, watercolor, oil paint, pigment sticks, charcoal, graphite and collage.  Acrylic media can serve as a base underpainting.  All imagery applicable.  Appropriate for continuing painters, who work toward developing a strong personal vocabulary.

   Both classes will meet weekly on Zoom, either  Mondays 1-3 pm or Thursdays 7-9 pm for discussion,live demos, and presentation of work. It is my hope that participants can set themselves up in their home studios and work along with me. Increased dialogue occurs through weekly lessons, demos and , our private Facebook group Both classes will be limited to 10 participants.  Materials list will be supplied upon registration.

For continuing painters familiar with oil media. We will meet on Zoom and work together from our home studios. Enrollment limited to 10 participants.

  • You are fascinated with Abstraction as a way to bring more personal meaning, excitement and  drama into your work.
  • You are obsessed with color, texture, and design and want to incorporate these elements more fully into your work:
  • You are fascinated with layering processes and the possibilities of layering and excavating- it is kind of an archeological dig.
  • You want to learn how to combine  pastels and oil pigment sticks in a way that enhances rather than muddies.
  • You want to experiment with  mark making, doodling and develop a  more personal   calligraphy and visual vocabulary.
