The Art of Seeing – Making a Painting Work
A good painting tells as much about the artist as the painting itself


November 10, 11, 12, 2017
Folsom Lake College Art Lab (FL2-154)
9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Workshop is held on Friday, Saturday, Sunday
NOTE: Parking is $2 per day (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)

Cost: $350 per person
First Come, First Serve – Maximum 14 students
(FULL – waiting list only)
Open to all levels

Ned Mueller will talk about the whole process of putting a painting together; from the first concept, to small idea and value composition studies, the use of a color study and on to the finished painting. Students will also do direct painting, without preliminary studies.

The emphasis will not be on the finished piece but on the process of making a more successful painting. Remember, most paintings are ruined at the start, not at the end, as not enough preliminary thought is given to them. Students will work on counter-change, color harmony, and the balance of masses and shapes in size, value and color.

Students should be prepared to work from their own photos and/or field studies. Mueller will have an assortment of his own photos that students may work from … great photos of landscapes, figures, portraits from all over. Starts, mistakes and failures could be the order of the day, but Mueller says, “We will make mistakes, work hard, and have a good time doing it!
