Opening reception April 17, 2015, 5pm to 9pm:
Landscapes at Zazen Gallery, Paoli, WI
I’ll be teaching two different classes at Whispering Woodlands (Verona, WI) April 18 and 19, 2015
Saturday, April 18th: “Color Mixing”. We’ll use 6 basic colors plus white. If you’ve ever wished to explore color mixing, this class is for you! The colors we will use constitute my basic palette.
Sunday, April 19th: “100 Starts”. We’ll start as many paintings as we can, maybe not 100 but a minimum of 20. We’ll spend 10 minutes or less on each painting. We will distill the essence of a scene into as few colors and as few strokes as we can.
And another plein air class in June: Sat June 6, 9 – 4 Plein Air Painting in Oils for Beginning & Intermediate oil painters – In this workshop I will show you two different methods of approaching plein air painting. We will use one for a morning painting and one for an afternoon painting. For outdoor painting I generally use a limited palette of colors. I will show you how I manage my palette, what paint colors I use and how to mix colors using 7 tubes of paint (see supply list below). We’ll talk about placement, shadows, lighting, painting to finish and clean up.
Syttende Mai in Stoughton – Friday, May 15; Saturday, May 16; Sunday, May 17th – the rosemaling exhibition will be at the Fire Station, 401 E Main Street. I’ll have a small display of the things I worked on in my folk art rosemaling apprenticeship. I’ll be demonstrating rosemaling on Sunday the 17th from 9-12noon.
