Working Your Ideas Into a Series (Painting Basics and Beyond)—with Tracy Budd
8 classes: Mondays, January 9 – February 27 • 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. • $250
“The mystery of painting…what to leave in, what to leave out. How do I better portray my feelings about this idea? Is it fueled by color, value, texture or line? My shapes…how do they relate to each other? Do they move across the page, interact or overlap? Less is more, but not always. Hulling the idea, over and over until clarity emerges, there it is…like a dance, a promise, my focus complete…my reason.” Tracy Budd
Sometimes working an idea in a series of paintings will help you develop and organize your feelings about the subject in unexpected ways.We will work on multiple smallish paintings, from beginning sketches to sophisticated surfaces, always concentrating on value, composition, color and content. Layered acrylics/watermedia. Demos weekly. Click Here to contact Tracy for a supply list and questions.
