Susan Covert Workshops and Demonstrations
Painting the Domestic Interior for fun!
May 26, 20179:30am – 4pm
Demo: May 23, 3pm More details
Try your skills at painting the rooms around you, those spots that are inspiring. Working from a simple “set up” in the studio, we will sketch a preliminary drawing, redraw it on canvas and then begin the process of creating the atmosphere that looks like an intimate interior. This will be a step by step process. Bring a camera if you like.
You will need a simple traditional palette of colors, a small 9″x12″ canvas, a small sketchbook, a soft pencil, whatever you have, a selection of brushes, odorless mineral spirits, paper towels, an easel, waste bag whatever you use. I will have viewfinders and all the info you need to begin this exciting journey.
Painting en Plein Air! (outside on location)
May 27, 20179am – 12pm
We will be working on location to experience Plein air painting from a starting point and try to complete a finished painting during the time allowed. We will tone our canvas, sketch in the scene and by doing a simple process complete the whole painting in one simple experience. It will not be a complicated process but one that will simplify the steps for you. This is about working with oils to create a landscape that you can finish quickly and yet retain the experience for the future. You can do this to be on your way, a jumpstart for you. Beginners are welcome!
