“Light & Shadow” with Carole Böggemann Peirson
Are you struggling to capture a beautiful sunset? Are you trying to paint a gorgeous landscape, but the painting does not seem to WOW anyone? Do your paintings look “ok”, but you are not sure how to take it to the next level? Then this workshop with Carole Böggemann Peirson is the right one for you!
This workshop, for beginning and intermediate students, will discuss the importance of values (versus color), how to see the right values in nature and how to create a value pattern (“notan”) in artwork. The workshop explains how to translate complicated scenes into simplified value compositions and how to use gradations effectively. We will also talk about the effect of light, and shadows, in a painting and how to use them properly.
The goal is not to go home with a finished masterpiece, but to study and practice through a demo, examples, exercises and hand-outs…oh yes, and lots of personal attention! Bring your work for a (private) critique if you like.
Saturday, November 9 from 10am – 4pm)
Cost: $125 (supplies not included)
