Douglas David Workshop: “The Basics of Painting”
New Harmony Gallery / 507 Church Street / 812-682-3970
Level: All levels of experience welcome
Description: This really fun and informative workshop will cover the basic principles of oil painting and get you painting simple and easy to understand objects in a short time. The idea of this workshop is to get you comfortable with the process of painting including, composition, massing, building form, light and shadow and depending on your own style, knowing when a work is finished. Douglas delivers sound principles of painting that are an incredible foundation for your painting, and whether a beginner or a person who has never even picked up a brush, it will make sense. Depending on the skill level of each student, students are able to grow and develop at a rate that is to their comfort. Sometimes the demo is step by step and sometimes the demo is done first and remains as an example you can follow and reference. The workshop will walk you through a variety of subjects over our 3 day timeframe. While we will paint from photos Douglas provides and simple studio set ups, it will give you an idea of all of the various types of painting subjects that are available.
