Bobbi Baldwin Workshop: Animals & Equine

 

ATTN: Models needed, if interested, please contact Goedickes

What will be covered in the class:  This class will cover all the aspects of animal and equine painting including basic bone and muscle structure of canine- equine- and feline, color theory, composition, backgrounds, texture, and the facial structure.  (The amount of information will be determined by the length of the workshop.)  There will be a long lecture and demonstration on the way that eyes, noses, ears, mouths, hair, and skin are to be thought about structurally. I go into great detail about the physiology and teach them to think three-dimensionally.  

The skills participants will gain:  The students will gain great confidence when they are able to hear my lecture, see my demo, and participate in the way that I teach the facial structure by feeling their own faces and the structure of the skull.  I take pleasure in reaching ALL my students through the many various learning techniques.  They will engage a different part of their minds, learning to see three dimensionally, as they paint and produce far better work.  

The activities that the participants will experience:  The participants will have the opportunity to paint their favorite animal during the workshop.  They will have my immediate feedback on the approaches they take to capture the model.  I can individually guide them as well as lead the class through the steps it takes to create a painting.  I will share my 30 plus years of experience in this field.  If this workshop takes place over a long enough period of time where the paintings can dry, I will work with glazing techniques and teach them how to really make gorgeous work by letting the layers refract the light through the pigments encased in the oils.

  • 18x24 Gessoed Masonite
  • Set of 6 Shiva Paintstik's (12 Pack Available in Store)
  • 1 Blender Stick
  • 1 White Cattle Marker

Create the PERFECT and most personal holiday gift for your friends and family!!! Join us for a workshop focusing on technique and the numerous ways oil sticks can be used. For the professional artist, art student or amateur artist, Artist's Paintstik Oil Colors are an effective medium to think out shape, composition and color, without a palette or mixing cup. 

You can actually paint "wet into wet" with a solid oil stick, allowing a feeling of free, spontaneous expression.

Artist's Paintstik Oil Colors can be spread or blended and used in conjunction with conventional oil paints. They are self-sealing, just peel the seal before using. There are no unpleasant odors or fumes, so you can paint virtually anywhere, at any time, on almost any surface - from paper to panel to fabric. In most cases, the paint dries in 24 hours. 

Join us for 4 hours of instruction on Saturday, December 20th, with the amazing Gabby Reeves!  PLEASE BRING 1-3landscape photos of your choice that you will be using as your example to learn from. Throughout the class, Gabby will be teaching techniques and the variety of uses with oilsticks, while guiding you through creating your own amazing piece of art!
