We all make the same mistakes and run into the same problems with Composition, Value balance and Color harmony. No matter what subject matter you choose to paint during the course, the same core principles apply. Renee will give you many new techniques to keep in your life’s toolbox of painting problem-solvers in a FUN & RELAXED atmosphere. We will work on subjects such as-

How a limited color palette can broaden your mastery of color mixing

How to improve your drawing skills

Painting Wet into Wet

Composition techniques to sharpen your ability to produce good results

How to select the best photographs for your subject matter How to turn an object so that you achieve the vanishing edge How to paint loosely and get away from those tight paintings How to quick sketch with paint

How to keep your colors and values in harmony on the canvas, and much more!

The class will be limited in size so that everyone participates fully.

Please note: Oil paints are preferred, but if you choose to paint with other acrylic you MUST be proficient with your materials. Renee will be instructing and demonstrating in oil paint.
