Classical Oil Glazing Class at OSA

"Peaches and Plums on a Pewter Plate"
1610 by Jacob and Hulsdonck   
 
Classical Oil Glazing Class at OSA

Oregon Society of Artists  •  July 10th – August 28th
Mondays, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm, downstairs studio
$260 for 8 classes ($32.50 each) / $50 per drop-in class
To register, please call OSA at 503-228-0706
Note: You must be an OSA member to register for classes.

If you want to give your paintings an edge with rich and glowing color, learn to glaze!

Masters such as Rembrandt, Rubens, Vermeer and Caravaggio painted in oils using glazing techniques. Glazes are thin, transparent layers of color applied over an opaque under-painting, which can create glowing depths of color. This nearly lost art is now finding renewed interest and usage within the current representational art renaissance.
 
In this 8-week class we will:
• Learn about color mixing using layers of color.
• Learn about relative transparency of paint tube colors.
• Learn about the principle of “Fat over Lean”.
• Create a Modello drawing and a lean, light valued under-painting for glazing.
• Learn about substrates and primers.
• Learn to make a classical recipe of Rabbit Skin Glue Gesso. (Trust me, you'll want to clearly label this yogurt-like substance at home.)
• Make our own finely textured panel using Rabbit Skin Glue Gesso.
 
The goal of this class is to give oil painters one more “wow”- factor tool in their artistic toolbox.  Glazing's rich techniques are easily seen in masterworks of the past, and are just as worthy and compelling today.
 
NOTE: Drop in students are welcome, but the classes are sequential.

"See & Paint Your Subject in Oil and Acrylics"


Mitch Baird

Learning to "See & Paint Your Subject in Oil and Acrylics"

June 9  - June 11, 2017,  Friday through Sunday  - $395

 What does the act of ‘seeing’ mean for an artist?

It is a crucial skill and in this workshop we will explore the specifics of learning to ‘see’ the subject, interpreting the visual elements, and putting it all onto canvas. We will cover ‘seeing’ the light, form, atmosphere and space of a scene. The fundamentals of painting–composition, drawing, value, color, and edges will also be stressed.

Mitch will be doing plenty of demos in oils covering these concepts.
We will work in the studio from photos, field sketches, or still life subjects set up in class.

Weather permitting, we may also work outside near the OSA, gathering material through field sketches or painting en plein air. Individual attention for all students will be a high priority, as well as laughs and a lot of enthusiasm!

The Fine Point of Things - Demo

Scott C Johnson

2nd THURSDAY DEMO  
SCOTT C. JOHNSON
“THE FINE POINT OF THINGS”

SECOND THURDAY DEMO MAY 11, 2017
DOORS OPEN AT 10AM, DEMO AT 11 AM
BUFFET LUNCH 12:15 PM

Scott’s watercolor paintings are rooted in the plein-air
tradition and the soft washes of Japanese painting, as well as the refined line work of the Persian miniature. His paintings record the process of his technique, which often lead to happy accidents with less regard for a specific reality. Scott uses these small touches to indicate a valley beyond a hill or the tantalizing glint of water over a grassy dune. His work is soft and welcoming and is pleasantly juxtaposed behind his refined details. In his demo, Scott will finish a painting using these minor details to create a complete work.

 Scott C. Johnson is a sensual being with a deep appreciation for music, dance and garden design. His love of being in nature is evident in his work yet its mood is often portrayed by
impending weather, which dominates the subjects in the landscape. Subtle references to a change in the clouds and the loneliness of a leafless tree give reference to death, yet the mood is never hopeless and his paintings lets us know that spring is approaching and brings with it the tiny leaves of the next season.

Scott is an Artist-in-Residence at OSA and on the teaching staff.  Peruse his website at scottcjohnsonartist.com.

“DAY TO NIGHT IN WATERCOLOR” WITH RON STOCKE

May 19  - 21,
$395

Join watercolorist Ron Stocke in this three day workshop exploring techniques on how to paint light effects- from sunrise to sunset.

Ron will demonstrate his methods for depicting light effects that often elude watercolor artists.

 Day One
, we will explore early morning light with long shadows and color harmonies that will make the viewer feel as if the sun has just risen.

 Day Two we will tackle bright midday light and it’s effects on figures, cars and shadows.

Day Three
will be all about the night and how light and dark fight it out to create shape, form and mood. This is the perfect class for those artists who want to start adding personality to their paintings and stop painting what they see
