This workshop is designed to create a relaxed, informative, yet intense working environment. Romel will demonstrate his approach to painting the portrait and figure from life daily, using his direct fluid painting style with heavy emphasis on the use of improving color, drawing skills, value relationships, understanding edges and capturing the “feeling” of light.
Following traditional methodology and technique, you work from life in order to develop the tools to create well-crafted and luminous still life paintings in oil during this 2-day workshop. A focus on elegant composition and color allows you to create thoughtful, interesting arrangements while examining the relationship of value, color, and intensity. With these vital skills in place, you complete one painting from the initial drawing, to under painting, to full color. Class discussions, instructor demonstrations, and individual instruction serve to ensure that these skills remain in place to supplement and enrich your private studio practice. Intermediate and advanced skill levels welcome.
