Three Days in the Studio

"The understanding of fundamental artistic skills can allow one to capture the essence of the landscape by simplification of color, shape, and pattern; in turn, redefining the idea and presentation of reality"
This class will introduce the artist to the foundational elements of abstraction in order to loosen up in their painting. Emphasis on color theory, color notes, and sketches in various materials and tools will be discussed and demonstrated.

Feb. 9 - 11, 2023
Instructor: NANCY TANKERSLEY
Subject: Still Life for the Plein Air Painter
Dates: February 9 - 11, 2023
Location: Artists Annex - St. Simons Island, GA
$550
 

HOW IS A VASE LIKE A FARM SILO? Designed for the plein air painter who doesn’t want to paint in extreme weather, this class will help students see that they don’t need to wait for pleasant days to practice their outdoor painting skills. Students will set up and paint still life in a way that can replicate conditions that one might see outdoors. Through daily demos, lecture and painting exercises, the instructor will show how the principles that apply to painting the landscape can help make one a better painter of any subject. Through careful analysis of each situation, you will learn to start slow but finish fast. Students will paint a different set up each day.

Studio & Plein Air

Capturing the Moment with Color, Light and Emotion!
Landscape element & possibly Still Life
Studio & 1-day Plein Air, weather permitting
Beginners to Advanced
Oil is preferred medium but acrylic, watercolor or pastel

$550


This workshop is designed for students wishing to move their work in that direction. You will practice loosening your style and capturing light, color and that emotional moment. Emphasis will be placed on concept, design/composition, value, color, brushwork and edges to create harmonious paintings. Large abstract mass simplification and value to begin a painting will be stressed. Seeing color and the temperature of light, as it affects the scene and then mixing the right color and value to convey that. Paint application and brushwork will follow. Finally, we will cover pulling all these elements together to make an emotional statement about your subject. We as artists are creating a work of art rather than just rending what is in front of us. Seeing like an artist is what it is all about!

PICTORIAL SPACE ~ Workshop & Show

March 2nd ~ 4th, 2023

 

All subjects are welcome as we will explore the two (2) main types of pictorial space within the genres of realism and abstraction.  Starting by placing lines, shapes and color on the flat, two-dimensional space of the canvas, then manipulating the interaction and tension of those artistic elements, the artist will be able to understand, visualize, and create pictorial space in their paintings.  Secondly we will explore, develop and enhance our paintings with the influences of the overall illusion of three-dimensional space which is also suggested by those shapes, colors and lines.

 

Students will bring any reference material of subject matter they may want to paint.  Demos will be focused on the shapes, lines and color of landscape and still life subject.
