In this 5-day workshop, participants will have the opportunity to paint three different paintings over the course of 40 hours. The first day will focus on a simple setup (one object) painted directly and finished in one eight-hour sitting. The second day, we will focus on a slightly more complicated setup, also painted directly, that can still be finished in one day. The final three days will focus on a more complicated setup. With the longer amount of time, participants will be guided to study the setup, prepare the composition, create a poster study, develop an underpainting, and push the finish further than the previous two paintings. This is a progressive workshop, that will build on itself. Participants will use the tools learned in the previous days work towards developing their practice to creating fully realized paintings in three days. Dale will demo at the start of each day and immediately after lunch, with ample time each day devoted to individual student critiques.
