New Show, New Images
Over the last 6 weeks I have been preparing some new images for my upcoming show at Tyler Art Gallery @Oswego State Downtown. The exhibit titled Land--Sky--Water will feature at least 4 new watercolors and 3 new acrylic paintings.
These pieces, along with 7 other paintings are all about atmosphere and less about portraying a specific location. There are a couple of paintings with some landmark images which will immediately betray their location, but all of the others are non-specific.
Haunted by Water
To quote Norman Maclean in A River Runs Through It and Other Stories, I am haunted by waters.
I have always been drawn to the water and find my self most at peace when I am by the water. I love painting the shimmering surface of the water mirroring the moods of the sky and the morning mist rising and mingling with the air in such a way that it's hard to tell where the land begins and the water ends.

No. Not swimming in the river.

Acrylic painting is a great way to get started as a painter. Colors mix beautifully, the paint dries quickly and mistakes can be easily painted over with this medium.
In this class you'll learn how to mix colors and to use complementary colors and neutrals to their best advantage.
We'll also cover several techniques for applying paint including palette knife, dry brush scumbling and wet into wet blending. Each student will be able to complete 1 or 2 small paintings.
All materials will be supplied by instructor. No need to bring anything but your desire to learn this exciting technique!
