Spot on Color Workshop with the Webster Art Club

This week I had the opportunity to provide a 1 day instruction to the members of the Webster Art Club. I’ve been a member of the W.A.C. for about 12 years now and since the day I joined I’ve been welcomed with smiles, positive attitude and open arms. My development as an Artist comes through the support from my friends, specially the W.A.C. members. The subject was “Spot on color”. Getting organized, knowing your tools inside & out and how to maximize them. We also starting working on the color strings and the potential. I’m hoping to offer a 2nd day, so we can really dig into color strings like Monet & Degas.

Thanks for the chocolate treats!

4-Day Workshop at Patrick Sean Daley Art Instruction Studios

Can you answer “Yes” to any of the following?

* I have tubes of paint that I don’t use because I’m not sure how they would react with other colors!
* More than likely I have a tube or more of paint that I bought and totally forgot about!
* I tend to use the same palette over and over because I feel safe within my comfort zone?
* When I paint I pick what looks good and hope for the best!

If you answered “Yes” to any of the above and would like to know how to:

*Save money
*Save time
*Have an organized system
*Paint with confidence
*Learn about compatible palettes
*Maximize the potential of every tube in your “toolbox”

plus…

*I’ll open the window to see how masters of the past and present use intensity to their fullest potential, so can you!

Art question, can you help?

I received this question today and was wondering if my art buddies have any suggestions: “I was encouraged to buy Walnut oil as my new “now” medium for actual painting and cleaner for oil paint on the brushes. Now, I come from painting in the 60′s and we …used the combo of , linseed oil for thinning the paint and turpentine for cleaning brushes, now known to be harmful. I am so unhappy with the walnut oil that I want to return to the linseed oil and turpentine method. So, before I do this dastardly deed, i thought I would check with you, ~what do you use,~ is there a happier alternative for me?”See More
