Join artist Britt Bradford for a 5 day workshop exploring the steps of creating a still life oil painting through layers. Starting with composition, theme, and context, Britt will guide students through developing drawing, techniques, measuring, and how to get a representational image in pencil with lines, edges and graphite handling. Students will then learn how to transfer drawings to painting surfaces and paint a first layer using a monochrome palette to focus on value relationships. The remaining time will be spent examining color and form and how to slowly build a painting as the old masters did. Britt will present key concepts each day followed by a demo and then individual instruction.
