"DEEP IN THE WOODS" will be our subject! A large Great Gray Owl perches atop an old tree stump deep in the woods watching your every move, relying on his perfect camouflage feathering to keep from being noticed by you. You spot him, and make eye contact. He remains absolutely still as you carefully approach. This image burns into your memory and will serve as the basis for a fine painting when you return to your studio. You never had an experience like that? ... Not to worry, I'll guide you every step of the way during our four hour long class to capture a likeness of a Great Gray Owl deep in the woods in acrylic paints! I will have my original painting on hand for reference and supply each student with a reference photograph of our subject!

"RUGGED COAST" will be our subject for an Intermediate Acrylic Seascape Class from 1 to 5 PM at Michaels in Chico, CA
Tuition is $50 OF SPECIAL NOTE; *There is a "FREE" Painting Class from 6:30 to 8:30 in the evening

"RUGGED COAST" will be our stunning seascape subject for this four hour long Intermediate Painting Workshop! In this composition, the sea occupies a small portion of the painting as the focus is on the effects of the sea against a solid rock cliff face of a headland. The sea is relatively calm as we want the viewer's attention on the beauty of the jumbled rocks and eroded cliffs.

We will be able to modify this if you wish and paint a more active sea crashing against the resistant shore. There are some very strong contrasts of lights and darks that create a glaring light. The beautiful gray colors of nature will be explored as well.

Let's explore this subject together as I explain and demonstrate each step for you so you can produce your own masterpiece! As we paint, we'll listen to a recording of the pounding waves against the rocks!

You will learn how to;
1. design a dynamic composition with strong contrasting elements
2. paint in the basic shapes and forms
3. paint believable highlights and wave patterns
4. use warm light & cool dark colors to define the rocks
5. paint a soft luminescent sky
6. Paint highlights to define your light source
7. model the cliffs and rocks with light
8. paint evergreen trees to give scale to your subject
9. paint the final details to tie it all together

Grumbacher Academy Acrylic Colors needed to paint "RUGGED COAST" will include;
White, Ultramarine Blue,Thalo Blue, Cerulean Blue, Grumbacher Red, Cadmium Yellow Light Hue, Hooker's Green, Dioxazine Purple, Raw Umber, Payne's Gray, Burnt Sienna, and Yellow Ocher. (see *special note below)
