Oil Painting Beginner's Intensive - June 9-10, 2012

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity for a beginner painter to get started off on the right foot!

In early June Charles will be teaching a 2-day beginner's intensive workshop:  
Beginning Still Life - Getting Started with Oil Paint.
Two full days of solid nuts and bolts information on oil paint, mediums, brushes, canvases and everything related.

- June 9 - 10, 2012
- Saturday and Sunday, 11:00 - 5:30
- $175 - 16 years and up

For artists who have found oil painting daunting or frustrating, as well as those who want to paint but don’t know where to start. A nuts and bolts primer to get you started painting your first oil painting without photography or group pattern.

The workshop begins with a demonstration by the instructor, followed by a walk-through of the oil painting and other related sections of Binders explaining what supplies you need and what you don’t need. Students need to come prepared to purchase supplies the first day.

Students will paint a simple still life from life to begin exploring the principles of art. Charles provides a solid foundation of information for the student to take home, and to build on, to continue the beginning of their artistic journey.

New Work: "Duet Modena"

It can be somewhat of a challenge living with an artist. Inspiration tends to strike at the oddest moments...

Charles makes a killer spaghetti sauce. We're in the kitchen one evening starting the preparations. He's already cut up the green pepper when he picks up the onion and starts to peel. Suddenly he stops, holds it up to the light, cocks his head to one side and grunts appreciatively. He carries it off to the studio, sets it carefully on his work table and returns to the kitchen with a big smile. I laugh and shake my head. Thankfully we had another onion - the sauce turned out great!
