Studio Painting 2 and 3 will introduce large-scale painting approaches to works greater than 20" x 24".

Approaches to painting in both oils and acrylics will be discussed and demonstrations will be done by the instructor in acrylic. Emphasis will be on developing multi-layered paintings that will include: foundation stains, textured layering, impasto mark making, acrylics and oils in one painting, and glazes.

Areas that will be covered within the course are:

  • Substrates and the advantages of wood versus canvas.
  • Images and/or abstraction.
  • Building source images via drawings, sketch paintings, photographs and digital manipulations.
  • Projecting for scaling from small to large.
  • Titles and their ability to obscure or enhance a finished work.
