Yellow Springs, Ohio
May 28 - June 1

The primary focus of this 4-day workshop will be how to convey the sense of strong sunlight in a painting by identifying, clarifying, and pushing the values. Exercises will be used to help simplify these concepts. Students will also work on achieving clean color in their paintings and utilize value patterns to aid in developing successful compositions. There will be discussions on materials, scene selection, and brushwork. During the workshop, Tim will create a demonstration painting each day and work with students individually on their paintings throughout the day. Tim will also present slideshows, using examples of his work and the work of others to illustrate key concepts.

We'll work primarily outdoors, on a couple of private farms nearby. But if the weather is poor, we may be forced to work indoors from photos. I'm planning to begin at 1:00 on the 28th, and end at noon on June 1st. We'll paint from 9-12, then take a 2 hour break, and paint again from 2-5.

Why Yellow Springs? I grew up there! It's a charming little town, and I never tire of visiting. I'll be staying with my Mom, but I have reserved an entire bed & breakfast where everyone can stay, with a few rooms at a hotel across the street. Both are a very short walk to downtown with restaurants, grocery store, etc. This will be my fourth workshop in Yellow Springs, and these farm properties are perfect for painting.

Workshop fee is $700. Limited to 12.
