Join Michael Orwick in scenic Cannon Beach, Oregon, for 3 days of painting some truly spectacular scenery.
Put life and personality into your landscapes. We will focus on the fundamentals of landscape painting while exploring the beauty and atmosphere of the area.
10am-4pm (I like to paint the light of morning and evening best and my students are always welcome to join me for informal sunrise and sunset paint outs at no additional charge.)
You will learn the importance of observation rather than using formulas and recipes to paint what you actually see and feel. Through instruction, demonstrations, and critiques, this workshop explores composition and design, value and color harmony, and brushwork and edges. Students will also focus on recreating a some of the atmospheric situations the Oregon Coast offers.
The workshop is open to oil painters of any level.
Look forward to Lots of personal painting time and help every day. We'll all learn a lot and have a great time.
Bring photo references in case we have to paint inside due to extreme weather.
Demonstrations will be directed at oil painters, but concepts and principles will apply to all media.
Oil Painting Supply List
Canvas and Painting Surfaces
_ Sizes 8x10 and 11x14 for learning on cheap boards and canvas panels are fine. Use what you like and can afford easily. I Use Raymar.com Portrait canvas boards.
_ 1. Ivory Black — general mixing black with moderate tinting strength. I try not to use black very often, but we plan on doing some black and white studies, which are a great way to learn values.
_ 2. Titanium-Zinc White - best general mixing white
_ 3. Cadmium Lemon – cool color, great mixing yellow can go warm or cool. Option instead of Lemon yellow Hansa Yellow Lt.
_ 4. Cadmium Yellow Med. — warm opaque yellow
_ 5. Cadmium Red Medium –can go warm or cool
_ 6. Quinacridone Red (or Alizarin) — cool red replacement for Alizarin and makes high key tints
_ 7. Ultramarine Blue or French ultramarine — warm (toward red)
_ 8. Manganese Blue Hue — cool (toward green) transparent water blue this beautiful color that many people can use for sky and water.
My extra color I keep around in Gamblin’s Indian Yellow for warmth.
_ 1. Gamblin Gamsol odorless mineral spirits for painting and cleaning.
_ 2. Winsor & Newton Liquin for detail and glazing, to unify shine.
_ 3. I always have a roll of paper towels ready to wipe my brushes and canvas. I like Viva paper towels.
_ 4. A Round Point Painting/palette knife sometimes called a Spatula knife for mixing colors and occasionally for painting.
_ 5. I like to mix my paints on a glass surface, but most any palette can work. Try to stay away from the disposable paper type.
I like Chungking Hog Bristle brushes for their strength and durability. I buy mostly flats and Filberts in sizes 6, 8, 10, and 12 with one smaller size like 2 for detail work. I use these brushes for the whole painting. I order mostly Utrecht.com series 209 White Hog Bristle.
_6. Standing Easel. I use The Easy-L
