EXPRESSIVE LANDSCAPES CLASS

imageTuesdays, 1:30pm-4:30pm 

 February 19-Mar 26, 2019

All Skill Levels

Oil, Acrylic, Aqua Oil

$185m/215nm


SUPPLY LIST

How do you develop a landscape painting that is dynamic, energized and exciting to look at?  Brushstrokes can denote action, drama and mood. Go for a loaded brush for juicy expressive paint while still making a dynamic composition with dramatic light and interesting shapes. 

This is an easy going, casual class for all levels of painters. I teach with patience, good humor, and boundless encouragement to help free you up to do your most expressive and creative work. 

 

My daily kickoff demos (usually about 30 minutes of painting, chatting, and sharing tips) will be in acrylic but will apply to all mediums. Questions and comments are welcome at any time. You will have plenty of time to paint.  Each day will include a general class critique as well as individual guidance (always gentle and instructional).  Use your own references or the ones I’ll supply. I keep no secrets and will share my knowledge of painting in each class.  If you use acrylics, I highly recommend you use a Masterson Wet Palette. Feel free to call me with any questions about this class.  studio 941-924-9889

Questions and comments are welcome at any time. You will have plenty of time to paint from various still life arrangements of everyday objects, plants, toys, tools, etc. which I will supply... and please bring to class any objects you wish to paint. Figurative drawing and painting requires the ability to perceive. Discussions and demos will address design principles, proportions, spacial relationships, color, techniques and other topics.

 About the Instructor:

imageJoseph Melançon MFA, NWS

Joseph Melançon is a versatile artist whose range of work includes watercolor, acrylic and oil painting as well as collage and sculpture. In his work he interprets lifelong interests such as antique toys, the American Indian, landscape and the figure using abstraction as well as expressive realism. Joseph's works are very personal with a passion for process, composition and the painterly surface. In painting he dissects, simplifies and freely interprets what he sees and feels through the use of composition, shapes, line and color.

 

Joseph, who holds an MFA degree, taught for many years at Eastfield College in Dallas and Texas Woman’s University in addition to giving workshops and Lecture/Demos across the US.  Joseph’s design and dimensional production work as curator of exhibits in two science and history museums and his years of building sets and props for television, print media, and industry contributed greatly to Joseph’s extensive knowledge of methods and materials.
