Upcoming workshops

Oregon Society of Artist 

Palette Knife Revelation 
Feb 7, 8, 9 9:30 AM-4:00 PM
Location: Upstairs Studio

February 7-9, 2020
9:30am - 4pm

Knife painting leads to bold paintings! In this workshop, you will learn the freedom and structure behind making expressive knife paintings with energy and excitement. You’ll use the control of form and color and make them work with big shapes and strong tone. Learn to “maintain control by relinquishing control”. By seeing the nature of the marks, you can use them to make effects. Steve will give demonstrations and offer individual attention as you gain confidence with the palette knife.  This workshop is best for people who have some drawing and painting experience.

Menucha Retreat Center Corbett, OR

May 4-7, 2020

Making A Scene

In this three-day workshop I will show you how to organize a picture to paint a scene. The most natural and organic landscape has a lot in common with a geometric urban city scene, when you know what to look for.  Learn how to do both!

What to expect from a lesson…

When a lesson begins I will have chosen a specific topic, concept
or technique. I spend the first part discussing it and usually make some
sort of diagram to illustrate it. Once the students grasp the idea I show
how it can be used directly or manipulated to make a painting. The
goal is for the student to learn techniques to create their own
unique paintings.
