      Still life painting can be highly rewarding, but it can also be intimidating. Perhaps your past attempts to paint fruit have looked flat and formless. Maybe the colors in your flowers have appeared “chalky” or “muddy.” Perhaps you’ve struggled to arrange a good still life in the first place! If these difficulties sound familiar, you are not alone. Adam will show you how to conquer these challenges and many more in this information-packed workshop.

      You’ll learn how to…

      • Identify the colors in your subject with the 3 Questions for Correct Color
      • Capture even the most subtle colors with Adam’s 6 Guidelines for Mixing Color
      • Make fruit and other objects look 3-D and not flat
      • Create forms that look properly rounded with “warms” and “cools”
      • Draw your viewer’s eye from across the room with the 5 Principles for Powerful Paintings
      • Avoid “chalky” or “muddy” color
      • Arrange dynamic still life setups with confidence

      Adam will begin each morning by sharing vital principles for still life painting. Then, he’ll demonstrate those concepts in action as he paints from life. He’ll verbalize his thoughts and show you his process. Each afternoon, you’ll have the opportunity to paint from a life as he offers one-on-one assistance and critiques.
