The Essence of Light Oil Painting
Brian Davis, Instructor
September 25-29 (9am-4pm)
Brian Davis will demonstrate the approach to painting in oils that has made his floral paintings renowned. He will talk about choosing a subject, composition, the use of a value painting, and the techniques of oil painting that contribute to the look of his works. You will watch Brian as he goes through the process of bringing a painting to life. You will also work on your piece. Brian will be there to answer questions and assist you with the creation of your class painting. For those who are interested, he will answer questions dealing with the art business.
Although magnificent flowers and landscapes are the main choice for his compositions, Brian Davis explains, “The actual job of making an arresting piece of art has nothing to do with what the thing is.” Brian transforms exquisite blossoms like roses, calla lilies, and dahlias into romantic, compelling images with sharpness, color, movement, edge and light.
