Boost and enhance your artwork with novel and complex patterns and textures in oil, watercolor and acrylics. Serving both abstract and representational artists you will use varieties of new tools, rubber rollers, squeegees, direct transfer techniques like decalcomania and other forms of mono-printing your images without a press to discover many new patterns and textures in your artwork. Learn to apply multiple layers of effect with these new materials and methods. Your instructor will provide demonstrations of the new processes as well as personally work with each participating artist.

Suggested Supply List for Painters:
This year I will be painting in my workshops with Charvin Extra Fine Oils, Charvin Extra Fine Acrylics and Lukas 1862 Watercolors and will provide the same artist quality paint brands for my students. Workshop students are also welcome to use any quality paint brand of special colors that is desired.
For oil painters: I recommend Charvin’s Extra Fine oil paints.
A Few Suggested Colors: Titanium white, Ultramarine Blue, French Primary yellow, Red Oxide, Napthol Red Deep, Ivory Black, Carmine Lake. Think of Rembrandt with this color and the red oxide and black, Pthalo Cyan…Those are the basics…if you want more you could pick up any of a variety of violets( i.e. Intense Violet by Charvin) and, Intense Violet(Charvin) and a beautiful transparent color Sanguine Brown(Charvin) Diamond Pink(Charvin) or Intense Pink(Charvin)(pink), Imperial green(Charvin)great for ocean painting, a primary yellow deep(Charvin) and, if you want an Impressionist green try the bamboo green(Charvin) the Impressionists also relied on vermillion(Charvin) cerulean blue(Charvin) cobalt blue (Charvin) and cadmium yellow(Charvin). Finally, if you’re interested in capturing the essential color of Tuscany or Provence then Charvin’s yellow ochre is for you. Next you will need a medium and I suggest staying traditional and non toxic with just refined linseed oil, poppy oil or walnut oil (although walnut and poppy seed oils yellow less ad give more working time).
