In this William Wray Workshop, students will work small in oil or acrylic using limited values and simple massed forms. The subject will be the landscape with structures found in industrial, farming and urban scenes. This class is designed for the mid-level student struggling with starting their painting confidently. Also, long-time artists who want to add a strong composition based abstract foundation to their work. The class will concentrate on that critical beginning of a painting, working very small with limited values. If you want to break your same old rendering habits and find a simpler expressive style, this class is for you.
William Wray will give a short beginning lecture and quick demo. Then he will give personalized painting demonstrations with each student as the day progresses tailored to the individual’s painting level. This class will be partly outside working from life and in the studio from your own photography and studies.
