Loosen Up: Seeing, Simplifying, and Expression This three-day workshop is for all skill levels from beginner to advanced. The first half of each day Penix will paint a painting from a photo to demonstrate his process from start to finish using oil paint. The second half of the day, students will paint with Penix’s guidance. Students are also welcome to bring a painting previously painted for Penix to critique. Penix will cover topics such as the power of warms and cools, complementaries, harmony, edges, shape-quality, variety, simplifying, loosening brushwork, elements of design, elements of light and shadow, and the power of suggestion. There will be a strong emphasis on seeing in terms of mass and shape relationships. Students will use oils (acrylics are allowed as well) to paint from photos. They will have a choice of dozens of photographs consisting of boats, cityscapes, figures and fish. Students will also have the option to paint from their own photos if they choose.
