About The Event

Metal and glass subjects have been a favorite for still life painters for centuries and they are certainly among the most impressive when painted well. They are however among the most challenging subjects to paint. In this 2-session course we will practice using small, simple set ups using a variety of metal and glass objects. Shiny silver, brass, copper and pewter along with a variety of colored glass will be the focus of our subjects. We will explore secrets and strategies for blocking in, modeling and how to apply those highlights that are so critical to achieving that shiny look.

He continues his own studies in still life and portraiture in workshops  in New York, Wisconsin and Arizona, and has instructed artists in many facets of visual arts.
