Put life and personality into your landscapes. We will focus on the fundamentals of landscape painting while exploring the beauty and atmosphere of the area. 10am-4pm (I like to paint the light of morning and evening best and my students are always welcome to join me for informal sunrise and sunset paint outs at no additional charge.)
You will learn the importance of observation rather than using formulas and recipes to paint what you actually see and feel. Through instruction, demonstrations, and critiques, this workshop explores composition and design, value and color harmony, and brushwork and edges. Students will also focus on recreating a some of the atmospheric situations the Oregon Coast offers.
I like to concentrate on the basic elements of painting and will include an exercise or two to reinforce some of the basics that we all need to brush up on from time to time. There will be at least one black & white exercise, and the chance to paint full color studies as well. At the end of the three days there will be time for a discussion about your work and for questions as a group.
The workshop is open to oil painters of any level.
Look forward to Lots of personal painting time and help every day. We'll all learn a lot and have a great time.
Bring photo references in case we have to paint inside due to extreme weather.
Demonstrations will be directed at oil painters, but concepts and principles will apply to all media. Michael Orwick's Fine Art - Available Works: Click the following link to view Michael's portfolio of available works: http://michaelorwick.com/works
