Want to break out of your habits and work with a freedom that is fast, loose and spontaneous? This three - day workshop will have you thinking on your feet.  Interspersing careful looking with fast, confident paint handling, we’ll hone getting the essentials of the scene down in a few loose confident strokes.  Beginning by searching out the large shape relationships, we will experiment with how to say more with less, how to let go of unnecessary repetitive brushstrokes and how to work with those small but crucial details, all of this captured with big brushes, and clear vibrant colors.

Each day will start with quick, small paintings to get things rolling - and then, keeping that intensity crackling, we’ll tackle larger works in the afternoon.  This will be a time to invent, explore and experiment and we’ll put aside the idea of making finished, perfect paintings.  A central still life with a variety of objects will be provided.  In addition students are encouraged to bring a few objects of their own to add to the mix, one chosen for its color the other for its shape. 

Working in oils is suggested - but not required. Come jump in feet first, change up your painting habits and see what can be done in three days.

Emily Eveleth has been eliminating boundaries between genres and finding vulnerability, humor, pathos and sensuality in the most unlikely of subjects for twenty years.  She is represented by Danesel Corey, New York, and the Miller Yezerski Gallery, Boston. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the MFA in Boston and the Pennsylvania Academy of Art.
