A Painting a Day Gain Valuable Insight from Oprah-favorite artist, Abbey Ryan

Drawing on her acclaimed career as a painter and teacher, Abbey shares how to strengthen your approach to painting and manage your internal painting dialogue so you’ll have a consistently positive painting experience. Abbey’s inspiring teaching approach balances all there is to love about painting with what she has identified as the most universally challenging aspects of painting.

Abbey begins by discussing topics such as selecting ideal still life objects, arranging a still life to see a “spark” and communicate an idea, and her strategies to begin a painting. Abbey also shares her thoughts on beauty, gesture, the Old Master’s concept of light as a subject, celebrating the sensitivities of a brush, and the role of classical still life painting in 2017.

Through live demonstrations and one-on-one instruction, Abbey reveals all of the techniques and methods that have made her daily painting practice so successful and prolific. Abbey will address subtleties of color mixing, lighting, canvas toning, palette choices, paint, mediums, blogging, galleries, showing, selling, relationships with collectors and marketing your work. Abbey provides specific, actionable methods and inspiring tips tailored to you to help you move forward in painting.

For all levels, beginner through advanced.
