In this class, students will harness the power of color in their oil paintings. They will explore how color relationships affect the perception of color, learn how to create harmony using limited palettes, modify their colors, alter intensity and temperature, and mix subtle grays. Each week students will work with a different palette combination to gain an understanding of the characteristics of modern and earth colors and opaque and transparent paints. All levels are welcome. Minimum of 5 students, maximum of 10.
Meg Walsh is known for her landscapes drenched in light and color and has won awards at major juried exhibits and plein air competitions. Though realistic in nature, her work has a strong abstract element, characterized by simplified shapes, limited values, and glowing color. Her paintings have been purchased by the Academy here in Easton, the town of Oxford, and the National Institutes of Health, Georgetown University Hospital, and numerous private collectors.
Meg is an elected member of the Washington Society of Landscape Painters and the Salmagundi Club in New York. Her landscapes are featured in the book 100 Plein Air Painters of the Mid-Atlantic.
My goal as an artist is to translate a scene, emphasizing what interests me most about a specific place at a moment in time. I want you to see the world through my eyes.
