Painting from the Head and the Heart with Roger Parsons

Emerging From the Shadow 10x30 (002)

We’ll paint landscapes in the studio with oils, using two different processes.  The purpose is to explore and experiment to develop your own process — an approach that makes sense to you, and ultimately, a process that allows you to express your passion.  We need the intellectual/ analytical side [our Head], to express the passionate side [our Heart].  Roger will demonstrate different painting concepts with simple still life arrangements, then demonstrate each process painting a landscape from a photograph. The workshop will address color mixing (value & hue) using cool and warm colors, and composition.  If you’ve taken from Roger before, you know he explains all aspects of his decision-making — composition, color, and more.  Students will receive individual help.  For beginner-intermediate painters, with some experience.

(Tues. – Fri.) September 10-14, 2019 (9am to 4pm)

Tuition: $350 for HCAF Members & $370 for Non-Members.
