Explore the extraordinary in everyday life and take your painting skills to a new level. Oil paint allows the artist to push the limits of possibility. Bobbieâ€™s students will find the magic in the everyday and transfer those ideas onto canvas. Itâ€™s about focusing on the unexpected, then capturing it with light and energy. Learn to bring to life the exceptional qualities that make an exciting and engaging painting jump off the canvas. Learn the intricacies of layering and bring out the reflections and glow of light in faces and other objects the way that Bobbie captures those nuances in her inspiring antique car paintings, portraits and other fine works. http://www.arrowmont.org/ http://www.arrowmont.org/workshops-and-classes/workshops/register
Indepth information: Weâ€™ll be making the transition from painting from life to painting some details of an antique automobile, with more possibilities in between. Students will have a model to paint from life for at least one full day in oils on canvas. Each student will have their own perspective, with many of my techniques and plenty of guidance thrown in. Iâ€™ll be demonstrating as well as instructing. On Saturday students will choose from several automobile photographs to paint from, creating a composition that brings the detail to life. My automobile paintings take much longer than a weekend to finish, so I donâ€™t expect students to create a finished work. They will learn a lot about painting and also translating what they see into something more than just documentation, something full of life and energy.
