Direct Painting Now
Parker, Steve   (P-4)
Fridays, 9:30am– 12:30pm
July 13– August 31 (8) weeks
$260 members/ $295 non-members

There is a great challenge in  painting an object directly from life. A sense of immediacy is felt as you render patterns of light and shadow. The problem faced in painting an object directly from life is determining effects of light passing over it. Developing the ability to see these patterns is essential to creating an interesting expression. We will cover: the painting of lost and found edges, rendering, and treatments of backgrounds. Learning to see and paint these tonal relationships are what we are after. For information or to  register by phone call (713)523-9530.

In this class you will make paintings using your sketches, photographs from nature, and memory. It is essential to begin interpreting from memory/experience to express something interesting and compelling about your subject. Using these methods you will arrive at a mine-able sense of abstraction. While guiding you through these concepts, we will work out technical problems as they arise.
