Critical Thinking, Editing, Composition and Brushwork…Key Elements to a More Successful Painting
This workshop is open to Intermediate, Advanced and Professional artists. The chance to create a strong visual pictorial should be a paramount decision of the representational landscape painter. Grasping and holding the attention of the viewer to our works, should be our goal first and foremost. After seizing their attention the artist needs to retain their interest with competent and expressive paint application directed and intended to create the illusion of  object, form, depth and mood. The creative process is based on a compilation of the basic visual artistic fundamentals and principals, which are essential in the development of a representational painting. The artist has various tools and procedures in developing a more successful painting. Critical thinking and the introduction of editing as one of your tools of practice can achieve dynamic results to your ideas. Critical thinking to resolve a better idea, harnessing your creativity with the ability to edit competently, developing a strong composition and bringing it all together with spontaneous and assured brushwork is our goal.  A better understanding and use of these key elements will ultimately improve your artistic and creative skill sets.
Kenn will work with you to help further develop your individual style. He will identify your strong and weak points. We will build on your strengths and work to overcome the weaknesses. The format of the class will be taught indoors in a controlled environment with the instructor teaching through lecture and or demonstration each day.  After the lecture and or demonstration, the participants will paint the rest of the day while receiving individual instruction.
