Desmond O’Hagan- Interpreting Light Using Oils or Pastels, 3-Day Workshop, July 26-28, 2019
July 26-28, 2019
The main focus in Desmond O’Hagan’s three-day workshop is to explore the art of “Interpreting Light,” an approach that can be explored in both landscapes and urbanscapes, as well as a variety of other subject matter. Lecture topics include “infusing light” and conveying energy with your pastel and oil techniques. Workshop demonstrations will include composition, developing technique through a more painterly approach, and the importance of light, values, and contrasts. Desmond will help you reach the next level in your pastel and oil painting by gently moving you out of your comfort zone.
This three-day course will include:
- A slide presentation and lecture on painting in pastels and oils including people, still lifes, interiors, urbanscapes, and landscapes.
- Discussions on painting materials, surfaces, developing your painting style, and working methods unique to pastels and oils.
- Demos emphasizing composition, color, and technique.
- Daily individual critiques of students’ works in progress.
Additional topics explored include solving common painting problems, experimenting with new approaches to painting, working from photographs, studio lighting, framing pastels and oils, and making use of the internet in your career. Also included is a lecture on creative ways to promote and sell your art. This course is designed for each student to work at his/her own pace while enjoying the experience of painting with pastels and/or oils.
