Thinking Clearly, Painting Boldly in Oils

Instructor:  JJ Jiang    

Class Code: FR2104  

Workshop Fee: $269 

Skill Level:  Intermediate/Advanced 

Medium:  Oil

We all adore artists who can paint boldly, expressively and assertively. But before one can paint in this way, he must learn to paint with the head, not just the hand.  He needs to form the habit of developing a roadmap for the piece before putting paint to the surface, especially in the early stages of his painting career.

In this workshop JJ will share with participants his straight forward approach to the medium of oil painting with the goal of developing a beautiful landscape painting all the while enjoying the process.  Using conceptual drawings, he will demonstrate his thinking processes as he plans his approach for the piece.

This workshop is tailored to artists from advanced beginner to advanced levels.  

Through step-by-step live demo, JJ will bring the landscape painting to completion.  After each segment, he will guide participants in their individual work. Participants will have approximately 4 hours to finish their paintings.  JJ will provide photos to be used for reference.  Focus will be given to the fundamentals, such as drawing, value, color and color temperatures, and artistic (painterly) approach. Throughout the workshop, JJ will share his personal insight and wisdom as it relates to oil painting.

Thinking without painting = daydreaming 

Painting boldly without thinking = nightmare 

Thinking clearly & painting boldly = Success!
