In Dr.Rosenstiel's beautiful studio in downtown Tuscaloosa, in what was once a sanitarium, we will run a variation of the still life workshop. We promise you will enjoy the experience more than many of the former inhabitants.
Painting the Story in the Still Life
May 19 - 21, 2017
9:30am - 4:30pm
Every painting, even the humble still life, has a story in it. It's told by what subject we choose to paint, how we present that subject, and how we paint it. Finding what interests us and how we connect to it drives that story, and directs how the painting is made. We will work on small still life paintings to explore the process—from thumbnail sketches, lighting the subject, considerations of composition, to the application of paint to build form with light, color and mark. We will walk the line between technique and intuition, using the still life as a way to explore paint, how we see, and why we make art.
