Instructor: Daphne Confar
Monday - Friday
July 8 - 12
1pm - 4pm
Students will start by sketching the model to determine the ‘feel’ of the painting, consider what to include or exclude, and think about composition. Then we will start a tonal underpainting to establish the values, push the lights and darks, and create a monochromatic version of the finished product. We will finish the painting by using a limited palette of oil color to glaze over the underpainting. There will be individual attention and direction throughout this class; all levels are welcome. This will be a fun class, where Daphne will teach you her technique.
Daphne has her BFA in Drawing and Painting from Laguna College of Art and Design and her MFA in Painting from Boston University. She has shown her work in Galleries from coast to coast and in Europe, exhibiting at the William Scott Gallery in Provincetown for the past 20 years. Her work is in many corporate and private collections and has been recently acquired by the Provincetown Museum of Art for their permanent collection.
"Daphne Confar's paintings are the progeny of an artist whose storytelling skills match her facility with a brush. Her portraits look like characters in a Garrison Keillor monologue: self-effacing, befuddled, and guarded people, sharply drawn with tender shining souls."
