Workshop Overview

Participants will be invited to paint a number of different landscapes and seascapes creatively, using photographs from various locations around Oregon. We will go outdoors to make sketches and paint a study based on them. In the studio participants will learn to use the fundamentals of design by cropping images, simplifying objects and painting value studies to create a strong image. Katia will guide you through basic palette color choices and show you how to mix colors using simple color theory. She will offer individual instruction to each participant, covering the fundamentals of painting including composition, values, color and edges, and offer advice on handling the medium. Participants will learn the essentials of oil/acrylic painting and become comfortable with solvents (for oils), oil/acrylic mediums, brushes and paints.

    Cadmium Red Light

    Alizarin Crimson

    Ultramarine Blue

• Brushes- any good-quality brush will do. I recommend Robert Simmons Signet or Aspen by Princeton series 6500 flats or brights, sizes 2-6

• Palette - bring whatever palette suits you. I like wood. Disposable paper palette will work. Make sure you will have enough mixing space.

• Canvases or boards sizes 6" x 8" or larger depending on how large you want to work (6-10) You can cut Masonite boards and gesso them. Canvas pad is ok, just make sure you bring tape and support to make it easier for you to paint on.

• Odorless paint thinner for oil painters (I use Gamsol by Gamblin)

• Paper towels or rags (I like old t-shirts)

• Sketchbook

• Black and gray markers or graphite pencils

• Color wheel

• Oil/acrylic medium if you already have it  


• Old shirts to paint in or aprons to protect your clothes
