This workshop will start at 9am each morning and finish at 4pm - with a 1 hour lunch break. We will start each morning at the HQ for a coffee & a bite to eat.
Jeff will teach about creating form, light and luminosity. Jeff will also show students how to set-ip an interesting composition. All of Jeff’s work is done from a live set-up. No photos and no tedious preliminary drawings. Jeff will probably give a demonstration every morning or at least most mornings. He will discuss materials, prop selection, paint application, lighting etc. Jeff will then go one on one around the room to help students. This workshop is aimed for medium to advanced painters, but we will consider beginners. Please email me if you are not sure. This workshop will have a maximum of 15 students and all still-life props will be provided. If you prefer to work sitting or standing, please let us know ahead of time so we can cater for your needs.
“I must diligently search my heart to find out what really moves and captivates me. Truth is the essential ingredient in making art. The human soul is hopelessly bound to express it.” Jeff Legg
