Paint Your Heart Out: Design for Impact! with Kay Keyes Farrar

Design for Impact!

Kay Keyes Farrar

Description: Organize shape, value, directional angles and color to create paintings with impact. Add the fresh brushwork of plein air to capture light, atmosphere and excitement of the outdoor experience so your paintings capture the mood of the day. Start by gathering information in sketches in order to experiment with compositions and gather ideas. What inspired you to paint a particular scene? Concentrating on this one idea will help you through the painting process. Learn to break down the landscape into: directional line, positive and negative shape, value relationships, color harmonies, color intensity and edge quality. Understanding each aspect of the landscape painting in this order helps build confident design to convey your idea. Kay will offer demos in both compositional sketches and oil, and lots of individual encouragement at the easel. Lunch will be a time to gather to share our ideas and paintings. 

Time: 9:30 am-4:00 pm
