Oil Painting Workshop April 8 through April 11

Come join Barbara for a four day oil painting workshop.  It will be at the Dane G Hansen Museum in Logan, Kansas, Wednesday April 8th and continue through Saturday April 11th.  The class will be for intermediate and beginner students.  It will teach beautiful use of the oil medium and understanding the use of design and composition.  Two painting studies will be demonstrated and students will get one on one assistance and advice.

One lesson will explore a sky study, looking at clouds, sun rays, and  sunsets. How does the sky enhance the landscape and how does it help  create movement in the composition?

The next study will be a foggy day,  experimenting with a limited color palette and how to mix color.  Here we will look closely at edges  and textures, and learn to play strong hard edges against a soft illusive background.  Can you convince the viewer that there is sunshine behind that foggy sky?

For more information on the workshop contact the Dane G Hansen Museum.  Their link is on the gallery and links page on this website.
