Still Life with Water Mixable Oilsw/Beth BatheSaturday, June 2210:00 am - 3:00 pm
Wondering what Water Mixable (Soluble) Oil paints are all about? Known for blurring the line between watercolor and oil paintings, Beth Bathe's unparalleled style evokes feelings of nostalgia, like an old sepia-toned photograph. Beth uses unconventional tools including squeegees and Q-tips, along with her brushes focusing on composition, values, edges, and drawing rather than color.
During this one-day intensive workshop, Beth shares her unique technique with students. In the morning Beth will do a demo from a still life setup and show how she uses simple apps on her phone to simplify forms enhance value and emphasize composition. In the afternoon students will work from similar still life setups available.
This workshop is for all level of painters - from beginners to returnees. If you have taken a workshop from Beth before, consider taking this one as we work from an actual still life setup(fruit).
Students are encouraged to use water mixable (soluble) oils to get the most out of the workshop. Beth will have paint for her students to try as well as one of her prepared painting panels, brushes and other supplies for you to use during the workshop.

Beth Bathe Bio: From Lancaster PA, Beth Bathe’s representational paintings have been described by art critics as “evoking nostalgia, like that of an old sepia toned photograph, often with just touches of color.” Curiosity about the medium Beth works is often the first question of many viewers. Is it watercolor, is it oil? Beth’s answer: “somewhat both.” She works with Water Mixable Oil Colors in a limited palette, using brushes and unconventional tools. Beth crisscrosses the country, painting en plein air and participates in over ten high-profile juried and invitation national competitions a year. She loves the travel and catching up with her artist friends who are often compared to “carnies”, traveling from competition to competition. Beth was a featured artist in the 2018 February/March issue of PleinAir Magazine and in the Dec/Jan 2021 issue in an article about water mixable oil paints.
