To have colorful paintings you have to start them that way. In this workshop Mike Rooney, one of North Carolina's top workshop instructors, will show you how to lay down pure, bright acrylic colors he calls "crazy color" underpainting, based on the Cape Cod School of Art technique. Note: Acrylic and Oil paint will be provided to all students!

Then you'll learn tricks and tips to adjust the underpainting in stages to get the drawing, values and temperature correct before finishing the painting (on top of that) using broken color, scumbling, and washes of transparent, semi-transparent and opaque color. 

This method imitates the shimmering effect that light has on objects that Impressionists have tried to capture since Monet. There will be a demo by Mike, and tons of hands-on by students. This class will revolutionize your painting by giving you a looser, brighter, more colorful and sun-filled paintings.

Suggested materials list:  9"x12" pad of multimedia paper or 140 lb watercolor paper for exercises, 6B pencil, eraser, a 9"x12" canvas or panel, brushes, palette knife, rags, thinner, and all materials needed to paint in your favorite medium, and a smart phone (with photos you've taken to paint). Make sure these photos have good light and shadow pattern (stark difference between what's being struck by the light and what’s in shadow), and a roll of masking tape.
