Composition Through Still Life

  • Boulder, CO

Use still life to explore composition. We will consider the geometry of the arrangement, viewpoint and balance to build a painting that is structurally considered as a whole unit. We will do compositional sketches and also make changes to the setup as we go to find the movement through the piece. Focus will be places on satisfying and accurate drawing, value and color relationships. The workshop will be taught through brief lectures, demonstration and critique.

Full cost of this workshop is $375. A 50% deposit is required to reserve a spot. Please contact artworkshopsboulder@gmail.com with questions or to register. https://artworkshopsboulder.com

Constructing the Figure in Oils

  • Art Students League of Denver

Working from direct observation of the figure, students will focus on simplifying the light and shadow shapes to achieve accurate proportion and see the big picture. Poses will increase in length over the course, moving from a one-day to a three-week pose at the end of the session. Students will begin working in grisaille and move to a limited palette. The workshop will be instructed through demonstration, individual and group critique.
