This class will focus on basic skills that all levels of representational painters strive to achieve in each and every painting: accurate value relationships and good composition. Denise will demonstrate and lead students through a series exercises and examples to begin. Students will then set up and paint a still life of their own, honing these same skills with individualized instruction at hand.
This class is helpful to students wishing to master these concepts painting any subject: landscape, still-life or the figure.

- Paints, brushes, palette knives, palette, jar with lid for turps, sketchbook and pencil, a viewfinder and grayscale (for those who already have them), 3 or 4 stretched canvases or canvas panels - I recommend sizes you are comfortable working with in the studio. We’ll be doing some small studies and one or two larger still life paintings over two days. Students are also invited to bring pictures of their artwork as well as any reference photos they would like help painting from.
- A more detailed list will be made available to registered students before the workshop. I am also available for those students by phone or email for any questions.
