Enjoy learning from Kevin’s thirty years of experience of which he has painted the landscape, seascape and cityscape of Northern and Central California. His original teaching style has a focus on modifying drawing and color over multiple sessions. Composition adjustment and “point of view” are important design elements to his teaching methods. Students will be able watch Kevin work and to ask questions during his daily demonstrations. In addition, Kevin will make individual easel visits and give suggestions specific to the progress of each participant. Early California painters will be referenced from art books intended to inspire and learn from. Do not miss your chance to respond directly from nature and reach your potential as a painter.
Painting Workshop in Mendocino
October 10-13, 2011
Spend 4 days working with veteran painter Kevin Milligan in the seaside village of Mendocino! Kevin has created hundreds of paintings of the historic town and seventy-three works were included in his book, Mendocino: A Painted Pictorial. In this four-day workshop, Kevin will help you create your own memorable paintings and take your skills to the next level.
This oil painting workshop is an opportunity to work on the same painting over four consecutive days. In this exploration, one will work on designing engaging compositions and refining color mixing. Students will be able work in turpentine the first two days and then add medium on the third and fourth sessions. The medium will add body to the paint application and gain dark values.
The Workshop begins with an opening meeting at the MacCallum House Bar on Sunday Evening from 6:30-7:30pm. Wine tasting in Mendocino and a walking tour of the town are other activities on the four-day get-away.
