Playing with paint can help us appreciate what we develop on canvas and enjoy the new processes we have learned. Focusing on the big picture, we can create beautiful form on any subject that we fancy. Any tools may be used. Design, color, simple shapes, and unique representation of any form is key.
As a painter I have explored many different avenues in my career. I am not looking for one technique to accomplish over, and over again. Isn’t that the definition of insanity? I like to break new ground as often as I can.
The workshop will cover my basic learnings over a lifetime of experimenting with paint. Highlighting design, color mixing, paint application, creative mark making, and what can we do with lighting while understanding the basics of overall image capturing to showcase personality on canvas.
Students need to bring photos or a laptop/tablet with photos you would like to draw or paint.

GOING GREEN with PAINTING: Oil Painting without Solvents, Free your studio of dangerous solvents by using walnut oil in place of turpentine or odorless mineral spirits when cleaning brushes. Walnut oil removes color from the artist’s brush or tool as effectively as odorless paint thinners, without creating a solvent hazard. Walnut oil is a natural vegetable oil that neither evaporates nor removes essential oils. The addition of walnut oil to color will increase flow and slow the drying. More Here

Daryl taught me the value of mixing colors, helped me to improve wet-on-wet painting while minimizing detail. Plus tips on preparing my panels for painting.
Like a brush, Daryl demonstrated the flexibility of using a painting knife to depict bold, yet simple representation of accurate color. With many useful insights on squinting to see shapes and values, plus scanning to see color. Great experiences that will help me move forward as a painter.
Daryl is an excellent instructor who knows where each student is in their development and how to guide and encourage improvements.
