Painting Demonstration Workshop – Ghosts in the Architecture – January 27, 2021 – 1:00pmEST

January 27, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

David Dunlop Painting Demonstration Workshop – Ghosts in the Architecture – January 27, 2021 – 1:00pmEST


Join artist and award-winning David Dunlop for an exciting new 2.5-hour landscape painting workshop – From Realism to Abstraction.   Fleeting figures pass us in streets, stations, and bridges. We catch them from the corner of our eyes as we move through city spaces, through congested avenues, across soaring bridges, and under giant digital promotions adorning glass towers. To compose and evoke the motion, energy, radiance, rhythms, and visual reverberations that animate a city from its people to its traffic to its architecture is the goal of this class.

In this Workshop David will experiment with exaggerations of perspective, color, shapes and reflected light to convey the experience of life in a city’s architecture. We will catch the phantoms with their quick shadows as they pass in the fast, blurring electric atmosphere of the city.  There are no individual critiques in this workshop but David will be happy to answer your questions.

Oil and Mixed Media Painting Demonstrations.   In this quest David will demonstrate and experiment with mixed media and oils on a variety of surfaces.  He will offer an exciting guide to finding, designing and painting beautiful, luminous landscapes using old master techniques in a contemporary manner.

Recordings (lightly edited) of the workshops may be available for your later review.

Zoom Video Conferencing.   We are using the Zoom video conferencing technology, which also allows us to record the class.  Not everything will work perfectly at first, but we will keep trying to improve our online experience. Thank you for your patience!  (You can use the free Zoom option and you will need to register at Zoom before the class.  Click here for more information on how to register for Zoom.)  Please update your Zoom software because there have been issues with Zoom because of the recent surge in usage because so many people are now at home.
