Open to all levels, this workshop will teach fundamental painting with color using only white, black, red and yellow paint. You will create two separate oil paintings the will help you understand the basics of still life painting that you can then apply to landscape and figurative painting. Drawing basics, value, analyzing color, color temperature, and edges will be explored in order to create beautifully finished paintings with a very limited palette.


There will be a 1 hour break for lunch (lunch not provided)
