    This workshop will be held at the Gibbes Museum, Charleston, South Carolina.  Due to the small class size, each student will receive quality personal attention.  This is a great workshop for  intermediate students that need to strengthen and further their abilities.  Skill Level: Intermediate through Advanced 

    This workshop will cover fundamentals for studio and plein-air painting. It will include

    • how to  judge values
    • color
    • compositions
    • design
    • shapes 
    • perspective

    "My goal as an artist is to enable a viewer to feel the emotion and sensation that I felt when I first laid my eyes on the scene. I want the viewer to step into my paintings and enjoy, not only the story and the scene itself, but the subtle nuances, color harmonies, expressive brush strokes and lyrical edge work."

    Being on location and studying nature often is the channel that has helped me to advance my work. It is where I learned to see as an artist. When I take a sketch or painting I did on location, into the studio, I enjoy the time to further develop my ideas from the field into a developed painting. The studio gives me time to create, accentuate and develop techniques that takes the scene to another level.

    It is very gratifying when I teach students this concept and see them grow in their journey as an artist and advance their own work.   -Roger Dale Brown AISM  Read more about Roger
