Location:  Anderson Mill Garden Club, 13974 FM 2769, Leander, TX 78641


Qiang's approach to still life painting will be demonstrated with particular focus on creating dramatic set ups by observing the light distribution, and using bold and loose strokes to create a powerful and accurate representation on canvas. Using demonstrations and individual assistance, Qiang will explain his process of creating energetic paintings by manipulating values, colors, edges, and brushwork. Personal attention will be given to each student according to his or her current skill level and personal goals in art. The workshop is designed for indoor practice with live settings.

Qiang Huang will teach his 5 step method of painting a still life in oil. He will focus first on initial placement of the elements on the canvas; second on setting the values by designing the shadow and light patterns; third adding the colors, fourth modeling fine details,  checking edges to sharpen or soften as needed;  finally the consolidation phase by adding final touches to complete the painting. â€‹
