Derek Penix:

Loosen UP! Simplifying and Expression

This workshop is for adults from beginner to advance.  The workshop will consist of one-on-one instruction, demonstrations, critiques, and plenty of time for painting.  Students will use oils to paint from photographs. The mornings will consist of Penix giving a demo and the afternoons will be dedicated to students painting. Penix will cover topics such as the power of warm and cool, complementaries, harmony, edges, shape-quality, variety, simplifying, and loosening brushwork.  There will be a strong emphasis on seeing in terms of mass and shape relationships.  Penix will cover how fear can ultimately keep you from expression.
