We will paint small watercolor sketches to be developed into larger paintings later or framed as small, finished paintings. We’ll work on design (composition), drawing, values. edges and color while painting from life or photographs. If possible, we will work outside. But bring some reference photos for inside painting.
I’ll discuss painting while traveling, keeping small journals and making hand-painted postcards. People love to get these little works. Small paintings make great gifts and they sell well.
Art on 12 Gallery and Studios is happy to announce the celebration of our 5th anniversary. We look forward to another great year of representing the largest number of fine artists in Wimberley, Texas and the surrounding Hill Country. Save the date to stop by the gallery, and raise a celebratory toast with the artists on Friday, November 29th, from 3:00 till 6:00. We will also be kicking off a Jewelry Show… Good time to do some Christmas Shopping!
The Danny Jones Art Workshop is different from any other art workshop that you may have taken. “Having been an art teacher for 35 years, I know that it is important to build on each workshop participant’s own artistic abilities. I help them to progress at their own pace. For everyone to achieve the best of their artistic abilities, I constantly monitor and give each participant’s work constructive, individual attention.”
Each person is at a different place in their artistic search, therefore, I work with each participant individually by continually walking around monitoring each person’s work. Participants may work with any medium they choose; watercolor, oils, pencils, pastels, etc. (It can be a great time to try something you’ve never tried before and/or +a time to mix media.) Each artist will need to choose the subject matter for their workshop painting or drawing projects – person, animal, landscape, still life, up to you. Bring the photographs (quite a few) that you want to work from, preferably photos that you took instead of magazine photos. Painters may want to have their subjects drawn on their paper/canvas before the workshop begins to save time. Should a participant feel uncomfortable about his or her drawing skills, he/she may choose to wait until the workshop begins to get my verbal help.
Each day begins with a “mini-lesson” on topics such as: drawing skills, shading, drawing the human body, portraits or composition. The participants spend the remainder of class time working at their own pace while I continue to collaborate with each person about his or her work.
