Monday to Friday  10am - 4pm

This ten day intensive class is designed to introduce beginners as well as  painters who wish to hone their skills working from still life set-ups.

 As artists we like to paint subject matter of which is both pleasing to the eye, meaningful to us and relevant, but these time honored techniques of the 15th century which have stood the test of time, can be applied to a more contemporary still life design.

In class you will learn;

  • Design elements and composition
  • Setting up your still life
  • The benefits of doing thumb nails and small painting studies
  • The fundamentals of drawing
  • How light affects form
  • Turning form
  • Understanding values, color and chroma
  • We will also cover mediums and substrates used
  • Drawing transfer ready to paint
  • Painting the under painting called a grisaille
  • How to paint various textures and reflective objects
  • Painting demo step-by-step
  • Studio safety

Materials – Drawing & Painting
- Beginner students will have to invest in these materials but for your first day you need only bring basic drawing supplies.

  • Pen/pencil for taking notes
  • folder to store your handouts
  • Drawing Paper -Suggest Strathmore 400 Series
  • Graphite drawing pencils - Staedtler LUMOGRAPH brand (blue wood) 2B and HB is good or a retractable Steadler pencil with 2B AND HB leads
  • Kneaded rubber eraser
  • Small utility knife: X-Acto retractable snap-off style
  • a sandpaper pencil-sharpener stick, found near the pencils in the art supply store
  • masking tape (hardware store is good)
  • Assortment of long handle brushes: bring what you have or purchase. Here are some suggestions;
  • Filberts, 2 x each of sizes #10, #4, and #1
  • Rounds, 2 each of sizes #4, #10
  • Hog Brushes 1x #8 Round and #12 Flat
  •  Tracing paper, 12 x 14 inches, a few sheets or small pad
  • 1 Canvas Pad: Centurian Oil Primed Canvas Pads have sheets of canvas linen 6x8” or 9x12”
  • 1 x Ampersand Museum Series pre-primed gessobord 1/8” flat 11" x 14" 
  • Painting Palette: Wooden oval style with a thumb hole is good. Medium or large size please don’t get small and please don’t get white or clear plastic. I use several palette styles, New Wave is good and comfortable to hold

  • Palette Knife:  medium size stepped and flexible metal, diamond shaped blade, approx. 2 1/4" blade- type with "Made in Italy" stamped on handle is the best. 


Oil Paint:
It's worth it to invest in higher quality paints. Please don’t buy student grade.
Recommended brands:.  Rublev, Old Holland, Gamblin, Michael Harding and Williamsburg are all good brands that I use.
 *Oil Paint and specific colors  are required for this class,  if you already own other tubes of oil paint, bring what you have to class. 

  • White: Titanium
  • Alizarin Crimson Permanent
  • Cad Red Light
  • Cadmium Yellow Light or lemon
  • Yellow Ochre
  • Ultramarine Blue  
  • Cobalt Blue
  • Burnt Umber or Burnt Sienna
  • Raw Umber
  • Ivory Black or Rublev Bone Black

 

*** Optional Colors if your budget allows

  • Currulean instead of cobalt blue
  • Vermilion instead of cad red light
  • Lead White in addition to titanium white

Some notes about buying paints, the color labels can be confusing:
In general, don't buy anything that says "hue" in the name of the color. 


Note *** I like RUBLEV by Natural Pigments. They are a very good brand, well priced and made locally in Willits.


Oils and Solvents

• Refined Linseed Oil - (read label carefully, there are many kinds of Linseed oil)
 + small jars for storing small amounts at the easel
• Stand Oil - small bottle
• Gamsol OMS (Oderless mineral spirits by Gamblin) 


TIPS: A jar with marbles in the bottom works well for storing linseed oil in. Bring any small jars you have in your recycle like herb jars or hotel jam jars.

***Cleaning your brushes: To try to minimize the amount of paint down the drain and to help keep my brushes in good health I wash my brushes first in canola oil, a cheap alternative to safflower oil. Then I wash the oil out of my brush under hot water and brush soap available from art supply store. This is an alternative to swishing in OMS but entirely optional.
