Color Confidence Class

Color Confidence is over, and what a wonderful class it was! I’ve asked my students to pose for you with their favorite piece. You can see how different the subject matter and styles are. In the four short weeks we covered color mixing, color value, color harmonies and color temperature. Color for me is an inexhaustible subject and there’s always something new to learn.

My next class will be Tuesday mornings starting March 8th, acrylics and the Florida Landscape. We’ll discuss the parts of the landscape, trees, clouds, water, and atmospheric progression in short two hour bites. Maybe some homework? I’ll give handouts and we’ll critique at the end of every session.

Because the class is the short and sweet variety, only two hours per session, there’s not enough time to go outside and paint. As artist Stapleton Kearns says “learning to paint the landscape inside is like learning to swim on the sofa.” So I’ve asked the Art League to add another day and we’ll take a morning to paint out in the Everglades. You can call the Art League of Marco or sign up online if you’d like to come along!
