Kim’s workshops on human and animal experiences bring the thrill of throwing, dropping, and pushing paints until the subjects emerge from the paper. She believes that every painting is a learning experience and, in the need to be patient through the experience. Her ease as an instructor encourages you to experiment and take on new challenges. During this session, you will improve your ability to analyze your own work as well as the work of others. You are encouraged to bring your own photos for reference and to have your drawings on professional grade paper ready for paint.
Kim will step you through using contour drawing as a guide, not a border, and how to build form through glazes and washes. You will gain understanding on how the contribution of lights, darks, mid-tones add visual interest; and how to increase value through dynamic shapes and the use of lost and found edges. Explore wet vs. dry, wet into wet, and controlled glazes and washes. Breathe life into your subject matter using positive and negative space, while improving your color selection for skin tones and backgrounds to see them come alive!
