All About Water: Reflections, Transparency, Depth, and Dimension in Oil
Mike Wise, Instructor
Date: Friday, February 24th – Sunday, February 26th, 2023 (9am-4pm)
Throughout this three-day workshop, students will explore how to create vivid still water lake scenes from start to finish. Mike will demonstrate how to compose a scene with reflection, depth, underwater and surface elements, movement, light and texture. Students will be taught a multi-layered approach from block-in to finish, using techniques such as glazing, dry brushing, palette knife, impasto, scumbling, and the multitude of tools to achieve a three-dimensional feel in a painting. Mike will cover all aspects of picture-making from drawing to values, edges, color mixing, mark-making, color temperature, and brush/tool selection. Emphasis will be placed on reflections and transparency of water. Subject matter will be landscapes.
