How to Paint Water
Silvermine Art Guild| 1037 Silvermine Road, New Canaan, CT 06840 | 203-966-6668 ext. 2
June 7, 2014 | Saturday · 10:00 am – 3:00 pm | WORKSHOP FEE - $130
Course ID - DDSA1000AM672014

Learn to paint water: its translucence, its reflections, its movement, the illusions of transparency in tide pools and lakes, the reflections that glisten on wet city streets, the shifting shapes of waves breaking on the shore; tumbling aerated water cascading over rocks. Through demonstrations in oil, acrylic, watercolor and encaustic wax painting you will experience new techniques to persuasively create the sensations of water. Learn how past masters like Sargent, Turner and Winslow Homer all painted water as their subject. Come and just observe if you wish, or paint along in your choice of media.

Day 1. Perspective, Linear and Atmospheric- All You Ever Wanted To Know.
Class Limited to 18 Working Artists

The Complete Perspective Workshop! Learn all the fundamentals of linear perspective for rolling meadows, roads, buildings, still life, figures and more. Give your pictures believable space. Learn to use the principles of linear perspective creatively as artists from Pieter Bruegel to Diebenkorn. Learn to make roads and steps rise and descend, turn, bend and bank. Learn how artists like Cézanne have reconciled our biological vision to the pictorial conventions of linear perspective. Learn how Asian (Chinese and Japanese artists) used a different system of design perspective space and how contemporary artists have combined that isometric perspective system with linear perspective. All forms of perspective will be discussed and demonstrated such as: color recession, foveal acuity recession, value contrast recession, occlusion, atmospheric perspective, texture gradients, and relative motion perspective. Whether as a review to brush up your skills or learn new ways to apply the principles of spacial perception, this course promises to make your paintings more convincing with credible space.

Day 2. Cities, Buildings and People in Motion
Class Limited to 18 Working Artists

David will demonstrate how to suggest motion in skies, fields, trees and meadows, and the city with fast moving traffic and people. He will show you how to group your figures, imply motion and direction, and fit them within the scale and harmony of your scene. He will demonstrate how to create conditions of glare and luminosity in bright skies with radiating solar coronas. He will show you how to create sparkle and iridescence on shimmering meadows as well as the incandescence of bright lights in the city with the glowing halation of headlights. Finally, your instructor will demonstrate the principles for perceiving deep space, from color recession to linear perspective, from value recession to occlusion, from texture gradients, to diminishing edge acuity, from relative motion, to locating infinity with in painting. Your instructor will demonstrate how the psychology of perception can be used to create the experience of luminosity, motion, and infinite space on your canvas. Your instructor will show you how past and contemporary masters created these illusions. The demonstrations will be in oil, watercolor and acrylic.

Day 3. Lecture: How We See
Artists and Non-artists: Limited to 50

- The foundation to building more persuasive paintings
- Understand how we see(how our eye works)
- How we perceive (how our brain makes pictures)
All day lecture/demo for the public in general.
Consider how you make your choices for a meal, a shirt or a painting. New insights from neurobiology, neuroscience, and psychology help explain how we construct images of our world, how our vision, hearing, touch and smell work in unison. If we know how our visual perception works, we can learn new ways to look at the world, re-direct our attention and find new ideas. This talk considers how perception works; what we look for, how we look and what we miss. It explores how much we visually translate and navigate the chaos that surrounds us and how culture directs our view of the world.

This 3-day workshop will have a daily combination of lecture and slides (2-3 hours), demo (2 hours or more, in both oil and acrylic) and student painting. The following topics will be covered:
• Water: capture the motion, color, forms and evanexcent effects of waves, waterfalls, moving stream and tidepools. Learn how past masters of the seascape captured the sensations of waves collapsing on sand, crashing on rocks. Learn how to create the reflections, transluscence and sparkle of water.
• Skies: Discover how to render skies in the tender light of dawn, the pageant of sunset and dramatic seizures of approaching storms. David will show you how to glaze, multi-layer and mix colors to catch the effects of moving clouds and ephemeral light. He will show you how the past masters created luminous and dramatic skies.
• Color: A comprehensive study of all aspects of color from historic to contemporary painting. Color constancy, shading, color scale, glare, reflections and other topics will be covered. David will demonstrate how differently you percieve color under various light effects, from twilight to mid-day. Pearlescence, brilliance, translusence, trasparency, reflectivity and the tint and tone of color will all be addressed in addition to achieving them across different mediums.
INTENDED AUDIENCE: This class is appropriate for most levels except very beginner. Please feel free to contact Nicole or Kelly if you have questions about whether this class is appropriate for you.
