MASTER ARTIST WORKSHOPS

Postponed until further notice

Painting Expressively with Color

Russell Johnson, Instructor

Mountain Artists Guild & Gallery, 228 N. Alarcon, Prescott

Learn impressionistic oil and acrylic painting techniques with accomplished Arizona landscape artist Russell Johnson during a two-day workshop. The goal of this workshop is to portray a visual experience of nature focusing on how it felt to witness nature’s splendor. This will be done through simplification of a composition, seeing value of colors appropriately, using color expressively, and applying paint texturally. Russell paints almost primarily with a palette knife, enjoying the sculptural qualities it produces. The student is welcome to learn palette knife painting or use a large brush to energetically represent the natural landscape. The two day workshop will consist of sketching from photographs, color mixing, setting up the painting, and finally, completing the painting. Live demonstrations by Russell throughout the workshop!

Russell Johnson grew up in Prescott. He is an avid hiker. On his explorations, Russell paints “en plein aire,” sketches and photographs subjects for future studio paintings. Russell received a BFA from the University of Arizona and a MFA from Prescott College. He regularly participates in two annual Prescott art shows: The Phippen Museum Western Art Show and Sale, and the Prescott Area Artists Studio Tour. He is represented by the Raku Gallery in Jerome and The Frame & I in Prescott. Russell also has two paintings in the permanent collection at The Phippen Museum.

How to Paint a Better Landscape

with Robert Goldman

Mountain Artists Guild & Gallery, 228 N. Alarcon, Prescott

Experienced beginners, intermediate and advanced painters are welcome in this class, and although the demos will be done in Robert Goldman’s preferred medium which is oil painting, artists working in other mediums such as watercolor, pastel, or acrylic are  welcome.

Bob will cover the basic concepts which are fundamental to creating successful landscape paintings. During the workshop, we will also look at ways to study photographic images so we don’t fall into common pitfalls when using them for reference. Above all, painting is about expressing YOUR idea, so Bob will help each student to achieve his/her artistic goals. Below, are some of the painting concepts to be covered.

  • Color palette

  • Values

  • Drawing

  • Dark and light – how to keep it simple

  • Understanding form and light source

  • Color

  • Mixing greys

  • Color Temperature

  • Design / composition

  • Edges

Instructor demos in oil will be followed by students painting. Individual help will be provided throughout class. Robert Goldman is an award-winning Southwest artist known for his plein air and studio oil paintings. Bob’s art and bio are available at: https://robertgoldmanfineart.com
