Learn antique techniques from stained glass, mosaics and jewelry to create new expressions for flowers, wild landscapes, and other natural subjects. The techniques of micro mosaics and translucent stained glass tinting will give you new methods and a new look to you paintings. Learn new ways to use transparent color, simultaneous and successive contrast and proportional color balancing in your work. Expand your technical range and discover new pathways of expression with your materials. Your instructor will demonstrate these new methods in watercolor, oil and acrylic. He will work individually with participating artists.
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).
