"Loosening up" is a goal for many, from beginners to experienced painters. Through demonstration, studio painting time, and individual attention, the focus of this workshop is to provide the tools and techniques for students' to realize their individual creative process in order to take their work to the next level.
We will cover color theory in the simplest terms to understand values, review various approaches to under-painting and glazing techniques, and practice a loose application of paint through the use of various brushes and mixed media.
Everyone works and learns differently and Tim will work with each student to guide them to defining their own style. Because many practicing painters seek ways of "loosening up" we will explore numerous techniques to move beyond our comfort zones. Students will gain knowledge of products and techniques along with new found confidence in their painting practice. All skill levels welcome.
