Painting Nature Workshop with Christine Neill
Saturday, April 22, 2017 10am-3pm
Instructor: CHRISTINE NEILL
This workshop focuses on the painting of nature objects. Bringing the natural forms into the indoor studio allows us to closely examine aspects of light & color, composition, form & surface and pictorial space.
Techniques of watercolor painting as well as the unique aspects of painting nature will be emphasized through demonstration, slides and observational painting.
The instructor will propose specific topics for students to work on. Participants can expect to complete a painting during the workshop. Whether students choose to paint realistically or expressively, they will be encouraged to work in a style familiar to them. The workshop is open to participants of all levels who have experience painting with watercolor (intermediate and advanced.)
NATURAL SELECTIONS, Paintings by Christine Neill, will open in the Bowman Gallery the week before the workshop. During the lunch break Neill will discuss her painting processes.
