UPCOMING 2-Day Impressionist Painting Workshop!
“A DAY AT THE BEACH”
The Impressionist Style of Julie Wende
We all have favorite photos of the beach and Julie Wende will share with you her technique for depicting the figure on the beach. Oil paints are preferred for this exploration, but the principles apply to all media. Bring photos or the artist will have plenty to practice with. Julie will cover the basics of figure drawing (proportion, shading) and applied perspective where the subject matter dictates, also tips on color mixing and composition. It will be a good general art lesson for all levels.
Dates: Saturday, June 10th & Sunday, June 11th
