I gave my workshop at the SSAC center today and it went really well, I think! There were six in the class of all levels, including a gal who had never painted before. My idea was to teach them how to get paint on the canvas in an orderly, yet intuitive procedure in one hour. Timing yourself forces you be more spontaneous and fearless! And it's fun.
I did a demo for them in the first hour
(not easy when you are talking!)
Then I set the timer and off they went.
The end results!
I'm sorry I didn't get individual shots of each one. They were amazing!
I am a full time oil painter living and working the South Shore of Boston. My goal as a painter is to say as much as I can, with as few "well placed" brushstrokes as possible. My paintings are intuitive and spontaneous, meant to engage the viewer in a specific moment in time.
This blog is designed to share a quick glimpse into my process of painting. All paintings are for sale by contacting the artist. firstname.lastname@example.org
