  • Paint looser and more confidently during this 3-day workshop with Oregon artist Sarah Sedwick! Take a step-by-step approach to alla prima oil painting, from black-and-white studies to brilliant color. Build a beautiful composition with life and movement, get a new perspective on the still life, and learn tips for bringing inspiration to your home studio practice. You’ll learn the fundamentals of good design, creating sketches and value studies to plan a composition that works. Using a split-primary palette as your color foundation - two reds, two yellows, and two blues - you’ll do quick, fun exercises to focus on loosening up your brushwork before creating a finished piece.Sarah will demonstrate, and work with each student individually. Instruction is in oils, and acrylics are welcome - particularly Open acrylics, that stay wet longer.
