Workshop France 2017 About
This week in a French paradise (SEPTEMBER 10-16, 2017) will be an emphasis oil painting technique. We will study and explore a process that incorporates a spontaneous impressionistic painting with the detail painting techniques used by the Old Renaissance Masters.
You will choose your subject: A portrait, fruits, flowers, landscape, and others, but our primary focus will be a still life with flowers.
I can support your painting in any technique: classical, realistic, impressionistic or even Avant guard.
The main idea of this art retreat in France came from my new understanding of developing a style that is a combination of a spontaneous technique while respecting the Old Master’s process. This allows an artist new methods of presenting your vision while finding a balance in the effort, quality, and the time necessary to create a true work of art.
I will support you in strengthening your personal style, learn new little tricks while finding a greater understanding the Old Masters.
You will be able to try several different techniques and to start and finish several paintings.
