Instructor: John DeFrancesco

TUESDAYS in JUNE 6, 13, 20, 27, 2023 – 9:30am to Noon

Description of Workshop: You will paint during each session, learning to master these important techniques:
 Does it matter if we start by painting light to dark, or dark to light.
 How to add atmosphere and mood to your paintings.
 Instead of “over-stroking” with the brush, practice applying and manipulating the color
notes to blend them.
 How to control edges to present them accurately.
 How glazing, scumbling, wiping and softening can be useful practices.
 The benefit of doing more color mixing on the canvas instead of on the palette.
 Why values (lightness and darkness) are more important than color.
 Think simultaneously about color and value as you apply each color note.
 Why planes matter in composition.
 What are the various contrasts, and how they can draw attention to your painting.
 How to critique your own paintings to find mistakes and make them more appealing.
