For more than two decades I’ve been intrigued by the way a painting’s surface and subject complement and compete in the viewer’s mind. In working plein air, I am excited by the way my visual experience translates into a surface language expressed through the richness of paint. Using a personal language of abstract marks, I want to share with the viewer a deeper emotional response to the world in which we live.
This is a fantastic opportunity to learn oil painting techniques from highly acclaimed artist Billyo O’Donnell. Locally, you can see wonderful examples of his work in Mike Carroll’s gallery. This in-depth workshop on painting from life on location is for the advanced to the beginner. The goal is to give each student a solid understanding of the visual experience through the painting process while engaging the most basic to the most advanced concepts. Billyo will demonstrate and lecture to the group and personalize his instruction for the individual. Billyo’s easy going personality and dedication to teaching has been appreciated by many.
Workshop will be held Friday, December 27 from 9am-4pm.
Cost is only $125 for this one day events. Materials are not included. Limited to 12 participants.
Participants will meet at the art center on the morning of the first day and then we will be painting from select locations across the beautiful island of Lana’i, Hawaii.
The instructor will have a car and may have room for 2-3 students and the equipment. It is highly encouraged that students carpool to locations.
