OSA Free Art Demonstrations for October!

OSA demonstrations are free and open to the public.  See information about more October demos at osartists.org. 
 
FIRST-THURSDAY EVENING DEMONSTRATION:
Thursday, October 4, 7pm

Variations on the Zorn Palette,  Eduardo Fernandez
Eduardo Fernandez has found the Zorn palette of just four colors to be very versatile for portrait and figure painting. In this demo, he’ll go over how he sets up his palette so that it's built for speed when working with a model. You will learn how this palette arrangement keeps him on track with value and color decisions. Eduardo plans to talk about the works of Anders Zorn, answer questions, and demonstrate how to use a limited palette for color harmony and to create a wide variety of skin tones.
The effects of color and light, direct observation, imagination and love for drawing and oil painting inspire Eduardo Fernandez. Portraits, the figure, landscape and still life are themes in his artwork that he returns to frequently. Eduardo has exhibited in several Northwest venues and has taught at the Portland Art Museum, PNCA and Multnomah Arts Center.

Doors open with informal critique session at 6:30pm.  Demo at 7pm

SECOND-THURSDAY DAYTIME DEMONSTRATION:
Thursday, October 11, 11am

"Portrait and Imagination",  Trifon Markov
Trifon Markov attended art school and studied painting in the classical tradition in Moscow, Russia. For the last four years he has been living and creating art in Portland. He explains that this open-minded city has allowed him to further his art expression and creative style. He found Portland Saturday Market to be a perfect place for making his sketches and portraits as the market draws visitors from around the world.

In his demo, Trifon will create a portrait, starting with a regular pencil sketch to capture anatomical similarities, then moving on to paint and brushes, allowing his imagination to guide him in his process. 
The beautiful results are what Trifon Markov is becoming known for; to have your portrait painted by him is to release yourself into his world and allow yourself to become cast in his rich assortment of theatrical characters wherein he paints his subject like a jewel. He is obsessed with flowers and trees and bedecks his subject with them as decorative addition.

Doors open at 10am.  Demo at 11am

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS
Register now for these upcoming painting workshops in watercolors, oils, and acrylics!   See all OSA workshops currently scheduled for 2018 and 2019
 
Simplifying Watercolors,
Tom Hoffman


October 12 - 14   (Friday - Sunday)
$295   register online
 
If you struggle against a tendency to overwork your watercolors, there’s some good news. This tendency is not about lack of technical prowess, so you don’t have to put in  thousands of hours to get good at stopping!

This workshop is designed to help you identify the essential parts of your painting subject so you can better recognize when you have interpreted it sufficiently.  Clarity of intentions is the key to knowing when the job is done. 
We will practice an approach (and a little bit of technique) that makes clear what is most important about the subject at hand. Where do you need to be careful and where can you be carefree? Before you begin a painting, do you know when in the sequence of layers the shapes get their definition? Asking a few questions and making a quick study clarifies how to proceed.

City Scenes in Oils and Acrylics,
Jennifer Diehl


November 9  - 11   (Friday - Sunday)
$395   register online
 
If you share  the love for the hustle and bustle of the city and all the bright lights that dance around you while you walk the streets, come paint the city with Jennifer Diehl.
Working one-on-one with her students, Jennifer teaches the simplicity that takes an otherwise overwhelming subject and makes it something not only manageable, but fun!   Friday will begin with a lecture and a demo that shows the process and answers questions, then we'll start our pieces! Each persons individuality is crucial and will be focused on as Jennifer comes to each canvas and tailors the learning process to you.  Let's get painting!
