"Loosen Up"
July 15-17, 2019

Students will use oils (acrylics are allowed as well) to paint from photos. They will have a choice of dozens of photographs consisting of trees, boats, cityscapes, figures, koi, hanging fruit. Students will also have the option to paint from their own photos if they choose. Penix will cover topics like how to make your paintings more 3-dimensional, the power of warms and cools, color theory, harmony, edges, shape-quality, variety, simplifying, loosening brushwork, elements of design, elements of light and shadow, the power of suggestion and finally painting how you see versus just copying a photograph.

"Painting the Head"
August 7-10, 2019

Painting from a live model is an effective way to improve skills in painting any subject matter. In this workshop you will receive instruction on drawing, design, proper value and color use, and edge control. To benefit most from this class an artist should have some drawing skills and a working knowledge of the medium they are using. The workshop will consist of power point presentations, lectures, demos, and every student will get individual instruction at their easel. While most of the demos/instruction are geared for oil painters, acrylic artists, familiar with their medium, will also benefit and are welcome. A full color booklet of class notes is included.
