May 11-12, 2012: OHIO, Lima. FULL. Price: $150 Contact: Ruth Ann Sturgill, 419-331-4999, firstname.lastname@example.org
This will be my second time teaching in Lima. Lima has a beautiful rural setting with plenty of barns and farmscapes. It's also got a neat downtown and is headquarters for Kewpee's Hamburgers. Why do I mention Kewpee's? As a bit of historic Americana, it was one of the first fast-food restaurants to offer curbside service with its heyday before World War II. There are only five Kewpee's left, but it's a fun place to eat.
This will be a workshop for oil only, and it is now full. Because the workshop runs only two days, we'll head quickly out into the field and get started. I'll start with a full demonstration to show you how to capture the moment quickly and efficiently but without sacrificing mood and magic. We'll talk about abstracting and simplifying the landscape; how to make the most use of value and color; and how to finish a painting. Next, you'll get to paint! I'll go from easel to easel offering help. Time permitting, we'll do critiques at the end of the day.
