Painting The Poetic Landscape
3-Day Studio Workshop in Pastel & Oil with Barbara Jaenicke
March 15, 16 & 17, 2019

Once you learn the mechanics of painting the landscape, it’s time to learn how to add the magic…the poetry. We’ll examine the difference between paintings that merely contain elements of the landscape, and those that convey a distinct visual message… and how to gain the skills necessary to accomplish this.

We’ll cover some methods that will help you develop a strong composition and edit unnecessary details that detract from the emotion you want to convey. We’ll also address how to make every stroke count, considering the particulars of how you apply pigment to surface and how the quality of the application will contribute to your painting’s message.
Each day of the workshop will begin with a demonstration followed by students working on a specific painting exercise for the remainder of the day. Instructor demos will include both oil and pastel. Students will receive plenty of individual help from the instructor at the easel during their painting time.

This workshop is open to all levels, although artists with at least some basic painting experience will benefit most.

Acrylic, Watercolor, & Oil painting Workshop with Betty Carr - May 29, 30, 31

   Learn to create an impressionistic painting in watercolor, acrylics and oil paints. We'll primarily be painting in watercolor and oil but students can work their favorite medium. Often times, in my workshops, students bring their favorite medium knowing that I instruct in all three, Oil, Watercolor and Acrylic. Bring in your favorite landscape and skyscape photos. I will have some photos for you as well. E-mail me if you have any questions @ bettycarrart@gmail.com
  This workshop will cover the basics of color relationships, value, composition and characteristics of light along with discovering techniques in creating dynamic paintings. Throughout the workshop participants will gain confidence in painting skills using spontaneous brushwork while exploring personal artistic directions and observing daily demonstrations. Let’s discover the “how to’s” of producing great paintings with sound design through painting and visualizing new and challenging subject matter. Exciting techniques will be demonstrated in order to produce luminous landscapes. We'll also be incorporating painting skyscapes in our painting session. The brush stroke will be emphasized in understanding the idea of creating the illusion of form in a painting. While using fresh and painterly brushwork, confident, expressive paintings will be developed. Learn how to handle edges and temperatures of color; mass and organize darks & lights and incorporate value sketches in your work. Carr’s passion for art and enthusiastic, spirited teaching style makes this workshop a fantastic and inspiring experience filled brave directions for future paintings.
