LOOSEN UP! This 5-day workshop is for all skill levels from beginner to advanced. During the first half of three days, Penix will paint a painting from a photo to demonstrate his process from start to finish using oil paint. The second half of three of the days the students will paint with Penix's guidance. On the other two days, there will be time for lecture and students will be free to paint. Students are also welcome to bring a painting previously painted for Penix to critique.

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.

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.
