This workshop will focus on helping painters achieve that ineffable quality of light within their paintings. Working from photo references, we will deal with the issues of value, color and edges in order to accomplish the alchemy of the illusion of light and atmosphere on a two dimensional surface. There will be time devoted to demos and the balance of the workshop spent on personalized coaching at the easel.
Please note that the instructor will be painting in oils. Oil painters and acrylicists alike may attend but instructor demos will be in oil.

The supply list is for oil painters; acrylicists should bring the equivalent in their own medium. See supply list for further information!
About the Instructor - Gaye Adams, SFCA:
Gaye Adams has been painting professionally and instructing painting for over 30 years. She is passionate about painting the effects of light in a representational fashion, and the challenge of creating the illusion of light and its many presentations in the landscape and elsewhere keeps her returning to the easel. In this last decade, painting en plein air has turned into a consuming passion, as it involves painting an experience, with all the senses involved, as opposed to painting a moment frozen in time by a photograph.
She is a believer in putting first things first when it comes to teaching students to develop their painting skills, starting with a strong foundation of basics in all aspects of art making in order to give students the tools they will need to fully express themselves as they move forward in their development as painters. Gaye is an award winning painter and shows her work locally, nationally and internationally. She teaches in Canada, the United States and abroad.
