My painting method is direct based on molding shapes, depicting light and shadow. Broad base at the beginning and continually refined (not over worked) until the desired effect is achieved or until the energy dissipates.....always the time to stop or sign off!

SWIMMING-IN-PAINT 2017 will be different than last. The team will sign-up a month at a time as opposed to the open single sessions we did in 2016. Each month will have (5) full sessions, (3) Saturday sessions will be devoted to painting small practice works concluding with a great (2) day large format Saturday & Sunday session.
Choose your own subject, focus on it for the month..... learn and study it, with plenty of small quickly related small practice studies that revolve around your chosen subject. The idea is to get comfortable painting shapes, gestures and the colour, light and shadow rhythms that best represent your subject and painting intent.
During the week, binge on it, go online, look and study other examples that might be useful in your own work. Come in Saturday with a painting plan of what you expect to accomplish..... block the time and execute your plan.
IMPORTANT: At sign-up indicate your "subject preference" for the month - related references will be available or combine them with your own to form personal painting ideas.
- Choose a single standard small works study size for the month (8x10, 12x12 or 11x14) Recommended Supplier: Jerry's, Centurion Oil Primed smooth linen, pads, panels or stretched canvas. Note: Linen pads can be mounted or stretched if worthy of wall space and the most economical surface to use for this type of work.
The last Saturday and Sunday session will apply everything learned from our small works to create a wonderful final work on a large format stretched linen canvas. (size determined by team member)
This process will be repeated each month throughout 2017 (Excluding December)
