Michele Byrne will teach the impressionistic approach to oil painting, using thick paint, palette knife and bold brush strokes. Emphasis on design, value and composition to tell a story. Discussion on the importance of a dynamic value study and how to make the viewers eye move across the canvas.
Learn different palette knife techniques and how to manipulate paint for different visual effects. Students will also spend time focusing on adding the figure to their paintings. Each morning Michele will do a step-by-step demo and then students will paint from a photograph. Plenty of one-on-one instruction and daily critiques each day. This will be a fun and inspirational class!
