Scott Gellatly Workshop

From a post on Scott's blog; " I'm pleased to announce my upcoming workshop, Exploring Color Palettes - Make Color work for you in Still Life, at the Oregon Society of Artists in Portland. This one-day, hands-on workshop will be held on Saturday, January 5th from 9am - 4pm.

This workshop will explore various color palettes, while focusing on the three main components of COLOR (Value, Hue, and Chroma) in Still Life Painting. We will work with each component of color individually through small studies, and then tie them all together during longer painting sessions. The goal of the workshop is to encourage you as a painter to develop a personalized color palette that supports your own, unique artistic vision.

The workshop will start with a lecture demonstration on Color Space, pigment history, and color palettes. There will be color-mixing and painting demonstrations throughout the workshop. Most of the workshop, however, will be painting time to put these concepts into practice.

To enroll in this workshop, please contact the Oregon Society of Artists."

Marla Bagatta Workshop in January


Join in for an intense three day pastel painting workshop next year. You will learn to paint poems, not novels in pastel! Learn how to swiftly capture mood, light, and accurate form by concentrating on the “process” rather than the product. Techniques for achieving a spontaneous yet controlled approach will be practiced with an emphasis on value and color ideas to make your pieces “work”.

Marla creates a supportive, energetic atmosphere, encourages humor and fun while providing the necessary structure for artistic growth. Each day will begin with a short lecture and demonstration followed by suggested exercises and individual mentoring at your easel. Each day will close with a positive actionable critique.
