Take your paintings to the next level through this three-day workshop with artist/ instructor, Steven S. Walker. Participants will learn how to capture light and how to achieve captivating glows within their paintings while using photographs of their choice as reference. Many of the basic elements of design such as color, composition and depth will be explored along with a discussion pertaining to observation and photographing for reference. A primary focus during the workshop will be to gain a fundamental understanding of painting materials, techniques and studio practices to make your painting process easier and more successful. Each day will include a demonstration at the beginning of class. This workshop is open to all levels. Each student will receive individual attention catered to his or her skill level. Artists may use oil or acrylics.

The Following is a SUGGESTED supply list.

Painting surface

I strongly recommend painting on Ampersand gesso panels because of their durability and rigid nature. Two to three pre-gessoed hardwood / masonite panels in any of the following sizes (11x14, 16x20 and/or 18x24) Bring sizes that you are slightly bigger than what you’re comfortable working with. Believe it is harder to work on smaller paintings than larger paintings. Please avoid canvas if you can because it takes extra preparation even when purchased pre gesssoed.

Gamsol or Olive Oil or Walnut Oil *

Resealable Jar / Container for solvents*
