May 2010 Still Life Workshop

Three-day Still Life Workshop
In Vermont this Spring
May 12Th - 14Th

"White Pumpkin with Vines" 2009

~ Exploring the Still Life in Oil~

Sign up for this three-day painting experience, in Putney Vermont!

For each of the full three days,
I'll be providing painting demonstrations (completed from start to finish), followed by sessions of instruction and critique as students are given opportunity to paint from life.

Participants in this workshop will explore:

Composition: Prepositioning the subjects, to create interest in the still life
Drawing: The importance of a sound start
Color: Giving attention to temperature
Value: Making the most of limits
Edges: Creating movement in the still life

The Workshop will be held each day in the "Village Arts Barn": A large and conveniently located building in Putney Vermont, where the well known painting group, "The Putney Painters", meet.

Class is limited to only fourteen students!

Cost is $350 per participant
A materials list, along with a list of recommended hotel accommodations, will be provided post signing up. (students are required to bring their own painting materials, and make hotel reservations.)

For more information, and to register, contact me directly at:

Don't miss your opportunity to personally paint with me this year, and build the necessary skills for a better painting experience!
