Learn to fill all your work with light and energy and hone your skills, by painting a still life. Set-up and paint a well-constructed composition featuring favorite objects you have brought. Some supporting objects will be provided. You will paint with emotion when you love your subject! Bring a favorite vase, a flow blue pitcher, cut melon, onions, fruit, pastries, bird's nest, copper vessel, favorite fresh flowers or foliage - whatever makes you want to paint! Lights, stands, and backdrop stations will be provided.
We will discuss the principals of fine art as inspired by the Masters; and have lively discussions about values, hard and soft edges, transparent vs. opaque color, focal point, brushwork, palette knife and more. There will be an instructor demo and lots of individual attention. This workshop is open to all skill levels and styles; some drawing or painting experience is recommended. The main emphasis is on oil or pastel painting; however, all media are welcome. Students provide all workshop materials. Materials list under workshops.
Pamela C. Newell earned her BFA at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. She now resides in Fishers, Indiana. As she continually refines her work, Pam gains inspiration from history's Masters and frequently studies with notable living artists. Her landscape and still life paintings are created in soft pastel or oil, and reflect her love of nature. She uses rich color to describe light and mood and paints mostly "en plein air" or from life in the studio. She has painted in many beautiful locations including the south of France. Her work is nationally recognized in juried competitions including the American Impressionist Society, Oil Painters of America, the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society and Chicago Pastel Painters, and regionally; the Hoosier Salon, Indiana Heritage Arts, the Richmond Art Museum, and Indiana Artists Club, Inc. She is a sought-after instructor throughout the region. Her work is found in many private and corporate collections.
