Award winning artist, Cynthia Rosen is known for her big, loose and colorful paintings. The focus of this workshop is to translate your image to a larger than usual format in your media of choice. There will be a review of composition with a consideration to scale and the use of layering techniques and color in order to direct the eye. She will introduce the use of a thumbnail and it’s role in painting large. One or two 24×30” or 24×36” surfaces is recommended. Your surface (appropriate to your medium) can be anything from prepared paper, gessoed cardboard, canvas, or masonite. Cynthia will demonstrate in oil on the first day using both brush and palette knife and in mixed media and pastel on day two. It is recommended that you bring several references to work from including photos or smaller paintings. You can also use the instructor’s images. Dependent on the image and your goal, you will use either 1 or 2 surfaces. Bring your medium of choice- oil, acrylic, pastel or mixed media. (watercolor is not advisable due to time constraints). This workshop is suitable for anyone who wants to work big and spread their wings. Level of competency is irrelevant, only the desire to focus on or transition to a large format and have fun.
Saturday & Sunday, March 5& 6, 2022, 10am-4pm $295 (open to adults and high school aged students)
