This workshop is designed to explore the fundamental reasons behind a painting's success as you create your own masterpiece.
Think of walking into a gallery and instantly being grabbed by a painting from clear across the room. What is it that reaches out to you and pulls you to get a better look? Learn what it is that first draws you in and how the painting continues to cast such a spell that you have to get within sniffing distance to learn all you can.
Through informative conversations and step-by-step demonstrations, students will gain an understanding of the interrelated components of painting- including value, shape, color, and edge relationship. Each of you will be given personal attention and friendly critiques. You will take home your own light filled landscape along with improved painting methods and theory.
The workshop is open to all mediums and levels of artist but is focused at the intermediate to advanced oil painters.
Michael Orwick's career in art started in animation at Will Vinton Studios and moved quickly into illustration, where he enjoyed bringing the ideas of others to life. As is true for many creative people, Michael was drawn to develop his own signature style of "Inspired Expressionism," painting his ideas on canvas and inviting the viewer to provide the narrative.
Orwick is a master of creating mood through atmosphere and color, utilizing space, a sense of place, and time of day to convey his vision. His work hints at a story and it is what he leaves untold that engages the viewer in the creative process of storytelling. He often hears that people feel as if they have "seen this place before". He has always been inspired by the ability of landscapes to tell stories.
