March 24-28, 2014
This is a workshop in a technique I developed over the past several years. We'll be glazing in multiple layers on a textured ground, using two different primary palettes I call the Southwestern Triad (quinacridone nickle azo gold, guinacridone magenta, pthalo blue) and the Traditional Triad (Cadmium yellow, Cadmium red, Ultramarine blue). Students will learn to create all the secondary, tertiary, etc., colors for their paintings from these three. Color charts for each of the Triads will be created by the students to use in the workshop and later on in their studios. This technique can be used with many styles from realistic to abstract, which will be discussed in depth during the workshop, using examples from my collection and other artists' work. Students will also learn to create a range of colors that are luminous and transparent by layering directly on their paintings rather than mixing on the palette resulting in a dynamic, shifting, "alive" painting. Light reflects off of the different layers at different times of the day depending on the ambiant light. There are many applications for this technique, and lots of technical information shared throughout the week.
