Painting in the studio with CarsonPublished 10:35am Friday, March 1, 2013
Saluda artist Jim Carson will offer a workshop titled, “Painting in the Studio” in Saluda, Thursday –Saturday, March 14-16.
The workshop will focus on simplifying shapes and applying paint quickly and confidently. There will also be an emphasis on color harmony, painterly marks, value, design and composition.
All this will be accomplished with a limited pallet of three colors, plus white, but students are welcome to bring different and/or additional colors, if they prefer.
The workshop is open to all levels, from beginners to advanced.
Students will paint from photographs, and will learn how to create fresh and spontaneous paintings from photos. Carson has hundreds of photographs, but students are welcome to bring their own. The class is limited to eleven, so there will be lots of one on one easel time.
Carson won first place in last year’s St. Simons Plein Air Festival Quick Paint, and has been juried in such prestigious plein air festivals as Easton Plein Air, Plein Air Richmond and Door County Plein Air.
A detailed summary of the workshop, as well as a complete materials list, will be furnished after registration. For more information about the workshop, including costs, contact Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org,www.jimcarson.com or 828-749-3702.
