I'm excited to announce my first workshop for 2018 at the Visual Arts Center of Punta Gorda, Florida. This three-day workshop will focus on painting outdoors from life (en plein air) along with basic art fundamentals of color temperature, value, edges, composition and paint handling. We will also discuss how to develop greater skills of observation, simplification, identification of a strong focal point and quickly painting “wet on wet” (alla prima) to translate what you see and experience into strong paintings. Participants will paint every day at a different location. Each day begins with a brief demonstration by Dan followed by everyone painting, with plenty of one-on-one instruction. The class is structured for beginners to advanced painters.
Workshop fee is $500 ($450 for Visual Arts Center members). For more information or to register for this workshop, contact the Visual Arts Center at (941) 639-8810 or visit the center's web site at www.visualartcenter.org.
