About The Event

Workshop Description (from the instructor)

Using still lifes as our subject material, we will explore the three things painters struggle over. Composition, Value and Temperature can make or break your painting. Learn how to strengthen your work by paying attention to these with a limited palette. (I travel and paint with a warm yellow, red and blue - and Cool red, yellow and blue. Plus Titanium White)

About the Instructor

Oil painter Hilarie Lambert will tell you she enjoys painting the familiar: vintage toys, notable architecture, or coastal scenes, but nothing about her work is “ordinary.” Through the filter of light in an egret’s wings in flight, or the way a newspaper crumbles under just-caught blue crabs, Lambert reveals the beauty in what we might have forgotten or gotten too busy to notice – the magic of the every day.

Although Lambert has won numerous awards, what keeps her painting is her fascination with the process. “I just want to be the best painter I can be,” she says, and she means it, painting prolifically in the studio and out on location - covering subjects as diverse as she. Her commissions range from landscapes to portraits.

The world in Lambert’s paintings is seen through her sense of humor and love of whimsy. She paints the rainy day in Paris, not the sunny one, the forgotten radio on the shelf, or the boy feeding pigeons in St. Mark’s Square (instead of the majestic basilica), all illustrating her joy in the edges of things, the side streets, the back doors. The paint is laid down in what seems to be quick, loose, but strong brush strokes usually with a very generous amount of paint. This style gives the viewer a definite sense of the artist’s hand and vision at work in the finished piece, and deepens the feeling of connection between subject, artist and viewer.

A former graphic designer, and illustrator from the Finger Lakes of New York, Ms. Lambert has studied under Burton Silverman, Kim English, Scott Burdick, and Judy Carducci. She travels extensively in Italy and France, where she paints and visits family. She lives in Charleston, S.C.  and has two children – Casey, a brewmaster in Tampa, and Samantha, a blogger in Paris.
