Watch master painter Michael Orwick demo a painting from start to finish!
Michael Orwick We will focus on the fundamentals of landscape painting while exploring the beauty and atmosphere of the area. Each day will include a demo and a group discussion about painting techniques, materials and philosophy, with individual easel time and helpful critiques. Beginners welcome! You will learn the importance of observation rather than using formulas and recipes to paint what you actually see and feel. This workshop explores composition and design, value and color harmony, along with brushwork and edges. Demonstrations will be directed at oil painters, but concepts and principles will apply to all painting media. We will meet at The Gallery for discussion then walk or drive to the nearby, lovely park and Willamette River area.
