In painting, there’s a long tradition of painting white objects. In paintings of snow, porcelain, fabric, clouds, or even cake frosting, there are opportunities to learn how to:

• Create a rainbow of subtle colors using glazing layering techniques

• Vary soft and hard edges more effectively.

In this workshop we’ll create 2 paintings with white objects. Photo reference will be provided but you’re welcome to use your own reference.

Both online and in person workshops will include painting demos, student work feedback sessions, slideshow presentations, and eye training exercises. These combinations of activities are designed to help refine your painting techniques and observation skills. Photo references will be provided for all painting assignments.

Online workshop students are responsible for knowing how to:
