      Ditch your habit of drawing useless lines and start embracing how our eyes really work. Using masses of value and color you will start to describe form and atmosphere as one actually perceives them. Jon will make sense of the complexities of your oil painting materials and how best to use them for interpreting your visual perceptions. A special emphasis will be placed on the use of transparent and opaque pigments and how these relate to light and shade. We will work outdoors from life. Jon will give demonstrations on the use of the under painting, the importance of “lost and found” form, and explanations of direct and indirect oil techniques. Intense personal instruction will be augmented with talks about the materials and the working methods of various artists (both contemporary and historical). All mediums are welcome but the emphasis will be on oil.

      Jon Redmond will typically demonstrate for the first few hours, then we will break for lunch. After lunch Jon will spend the remainder of the day assisting students at their easels.

      This four-day workshop, held October 4-7, 2019, is open to all levels. The cost is $500. Sign up at:
