Romance with the Sea – Courtney Herndon – Tuesday and Wednesday, October 11, 12 - 10:00-3:30 $87/$98/$108
Painting the sea loosely in oils, with attention to composition, color mixing, and value. We will use large brushes and painting knives on oil paper and canvas. Painting should be an extension of your mind and heart, the sea you love, the charm in the scene. Learn what you can do to make the painting all yours, and not a photographic image. I will demo in oil both days, discussing theory as I paint, and provide a lot of individual help. I hope you will join me. Photos can be reference material, but we will be expressive with our painting. Beginner/Intermediate (1 hour lunch break)

Anything can be used…papers, fabrics, cardboard, paper towels, napkins, dried flowers, string, lace, etc. The surface is then covered with white gesso or mod podge and then color applied with acrylic paints. Come join us and experiment, explore, enjoy and create!
