Description

Art of the Background

Saturday June 22, 2019 9am – 12 noon

Workshop Instructors: Kelly Abraham & Florine Duffield

Cost $30

The Background has the incredibly important role of providing context and contrast for the main subject.

Whether it's a still life or a portrait of a person or pet, having a relatively simple or uncluttered background allows the focus to fall entirely on the subject.

  • What is a background supposed to do for a painting?
  • When do you paint the background?

****Through experiment on painted cardboard, students will practice doing backgrounds for assorted types of paintings.

  • Portraits
  • Landscapes / seascapes / cityscapes
  • Abstract, etc.

 

****Then using a fresh canvas or art paper of their own students will finish a painting trying out a particular background.

Supplies: Any media. Bring brushes, watercolor; pastel; acrylic; oil, whatever you want; canvas / art papers
