This opportunity for all artists is being facilitated by the Huntsville Art Society.  In response to considerable interest from the artist community this opportunity being offered again here in Huntsville.

Life sketches are a consistently rewarding artistic expression, because there is so much to take in. Every time a model makes a move, there’s something to glean and work on—shadows and gesture, to skin texture and how the limbs extend. Every pose reveals a whole new avenue of artistic pursuit.

Bring your easel and join the group!

May 2018 PAINTING LOOSE AND FAST

Painting fast imparts a loose confident style. Getting caught up in the detail and losing sight of the big picture is what we are going to try not to do. You’ll learn to create marks that are both expressive and confident giving the work energy. Finding the paintings essence in simple broad strokes of the brush and knife.

August 2018 START TO FINISH

The same old approach has a tendency to produce the same old paintings. If you want to become the painter that everyone is looking at,  with people standing in front of your painting with awe and envy, this is where you need to be. This course will take your painting from the very start and exploring what it could be , to the finished canvas destined to be included in the National Gallery collection. With the wise use of colour, composition and form, reflections, shadows, perspective you will learn how to maximize your ideas.

September 2018 TECHNIQUES

Take a nice photo and turn a blank canvas into a work of art that represents you and your unique creative energy deserving of hanging  in  one of the world’s greatest galleries (or at least not in the closet). This hands-on course begins with the approaches and decisions that allow you to compose a plan uniquely your own.  From there, brush and paint techniques will be demonstrated, and how they can (and will!) support what you want to bring to your painting.
