Artist Statement: Many people who have struggled with oil painting complain of "mud" or the effects of too much paint mixed together at the expense of clarity and crispness. I can help with that by breaking the oil painting process down into 3 steps representing three different days of work on a painting.
I begin with a very loose oil sketch of the subject (still life, landscape or figure). In my demo I will discuss thoughts on creating dynamic compositions and the importance of picking a point of interest. Next, it’s dealing with shading and value as well as the importance of color temperature. Lastly, paint thickness and building up of texture while keeping the flow of the paint. Then we can talk about the signature!
Broken down into three simple steps, the mystery of oil painting is revealed and everyone can be successful!
