This workshop, with award-winning painter Gabriel Lipper, will begin by focusing on getting a solid start with attention paid to drawing and form of the model. Then, the instructor will move into application of values and colors on the form. Demo and lecture time will allow students to glean from Gabriel’s years of experience. Students will be instructed in the Alla Prima or Premier Coup (or direct) painting style, which allows the painter to stay constantly present with each brushstroke applied with the intention of letting it stand in the picture as part of the final statement. This workshop will allow for each student to work at their own pace and receive the instruction they need making it appropriate for painters of every skill level.
