3-Day Starting Methods for Oil Painting Beginners in Iowa


  • Bereskin Art Gallery 2967 State Street Bettendorf, IA, 52722 United States (map)

All levels are welcome to participate in this comprehensive study of oil painting starting methods with ARC (Art Renewal Center) Associate Living Master, Tina Garrett, including, open grisaille, accurate color wash, and Tina’s favorite, selective start. Students will learn to understand form, value, temperature, edges and composition as well as color mixing. She will demonstrate how to control your palette for accurate values and color and provide insights on posing the model, lighting and painting materials. Tina will demonstrate three different methods from the live model each morning and assist artists individually each afternoon and will share her philosophy on painting from photographs vs. painting from life.
