YOUR GROWTH IS THE PRIORITY


Your growth as an artist will accelerate as we study great artists and unlock the universal secrets of image structure.


            “The best workshop I’ve ever taken.” – J.K.


At a primal level, it's this abstract image structure that moves us-- the use of line, shape, space, value, color, and texture.  This applies to any style or genre of painting.


           "Best workshop I've taken in 20 years of workshops." - D. B.



PAINT YOUR WAY.

In this workshop you can paint your way--  Abstract. Realism. Impressionism. Surrealism. Still life. Landscape.  If you are using line, space, shape, color, value and texture, this course is for you.


Mastery of abstract visual language is the key to connecting with your audience in any style and genre.

Image structure topics include:


LINE STRUCTURE        Beautiful art has beautiful bones supporting the whole.


VALUE STRUCTURE     Paintings that move us distribute light and dark to convey feeling.


COLOR STRUCTURE    Great paintings, like great music, are a tension resolved by harmony.



..............................................................


You will not be taught to imitate my painting style.  

Instead, you will be encouraged to explore, take risks, and become the best version of YOU. 


I want to help you find your artistic voice, paint with more confidence, and enjoy more success.
