This workshop will cover the basics of color relationships, value, composition and characteristics of light along with discovering techniques in creating dynamic paintings. Throughout the week, participants will gain confidence in painting skills using spontaneous brushwork while exploring personal artistic directions and observing daily demonstrations. Discover how to produce paintings with sound design through painting and visualizing new and challenging subject matter. The landscape, still life and architectural elements will be incorporated. The brush stroke will be emphasized in understanding the idea of creating the illusion of form in a painting. While using fresh and painterly brushwork, confident expressive paintings will be developed. Learn how to handle edges and temperatures of color, mass and organize darks and lights and incorporate value sketches in your work. We will be focusing on luminosity in your work. Carr’s passion for art and enthusiastic, spirited teaching style makes this workshop a fantastic and inspiring experience filled brave directions for future paintings.
