Workshop Overview

Participants will be encouraged to paint a number of different landscapes and seascapes creatively, using photographs from various locations around Oregon. Learn to use the fundamentals of design by cropping images and simplifying objects. 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 (composition, values, color), and offering advice on handling the medium (brushstrokes, edges). Students will learn the essentials of oil painting and become comfortable with solvents, oil mediums, brushes and oil paints.
