This class provides a solid foundation for the beginning painter or a refresher in basics for those returning to the medium. Students will gain a thorough knowledge of materials and methods, paint application, and the stages of a painting from block-in to finish. Through a series of assignments, students will learn how to mix color using a limited palette and how to simplify shapes and values for a stronger composition. This is a great class for exploring the medium of oil painting and building confidence to create a serious painting practice. Materials are provided. 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.
