Working large: Conquer your fear in Saluda March 21-23

Published 9:07 am Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Leave your comfort zone and enjoy working a little or a lot larger than your usual sizes.

Become adept at making larger as well as better painting and discover why some compositions are meant to be small works and others translate beautifully to a larger format.

This three-day studio workshop will be a fun and intensive exploration of handling a large canvas. Participants will learn how to select compositions that “work” for large scale paintings and how to execute them without letting the size intimidate.

Painters will work in their choice of acrylic or oil.
Participants will begin with a “get acquainted cocktail party” on Wednesday evening, March 20, at Jameson’s home and studio.

Each painting day will start with conversation related to studio technique over coffee, tea and pastries. There will be daily demonstrations working on a large painting. Participants will break for lunch (“Dutch”) and conversation at one of Saluda’s cafes.

This workshop is limited to 12 participants so register early.
