A class to help bring your own voice to your still life painting, whether you’re starting out or looking to freshen up your existing work. One of the most basic things we’ll learn is how to approach the painting process to start with. Setting up the scene, discovering ways to use your single light source to create drama, and the easiest way to draw an oval correctly! Plus, you’ll learn the tips and tricks to make metal and glass look more realistic without being overly photographic.

Angela will demonstrate how to select a subject matter, set it up for painting in a way that feels fresh, and how to design the lighting for maximum drama. Each day will start with an artist’s demonstration, followed by instruction and painting time while Angela walks around and works with each student.

All part of the valuable insight Angela will share during your weekend together. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from this master of the still life!
