"Learn how to create more expressive (less representational) paintings by balancing close observation with invention. We’ll learn how to see the big shapes and let go of detail. There will be an emphasis on creating strong composition, correct values and accurate color. Through a series of quick exercises, demos and critiques, we will discover how to create “loose” paintings that are, in fact, highly organized and carefully planned. Students will work from simple still life set-ups and photographs (supplied by the students). We will be using a limited palette and large brushes. This class is geared for painters who are interested in “shaking things up.” Nancy uses oils, however other painting mediums are welcome."
I am a full time oil painter living and working the South Shore of Boston. My goal as a painter is to say as much as I can, with as few "well placed" brushstrokes as possible. My paintings are intuitive and spontaneous, meant to engage the viewer in a specific moment in time.
This blog is designed to share a quick glimpse into my process of painting. All paintings are for sale by contacting the artist. firstname.lastname@example.org
