Explore the essential techniques for painting from direct observation and photography with award winning painter Patrick Saunders. Learn to paint any subject, from the most simple to complex with one approach. Patrick will demonstrate the process of simplifying the subject and moving to finish as rapidly as possible in order to add more energy and excitement to the painting experience. Students will learn about composition, value, texture, color temperature and accuracy in paint application. The class will work indoors with opportunities to explore multiple subjects.

Each day will begin with a short lecture and full demonstration, followed by one on one instruction with students. The class is highly tailored for each individual student and open to all levels. Class size is limited, so that each student can receive the maximum amount of interaction with the instructor. While Patrick will be demonstrating in oils, students are also welcome to use acrylic paints. A suggested materials list will be provided prior to the class.
