For those who are still more comfortable staying at home rather than taking an art class in person, the Rehoboth Art League will offer a Virtual Step-By-Step Painting Workshop with guest artist Brian Murphy.
Using the Zoom platform, oil and acrylic painters will learn to loosen up their techniques and create light-filled paintings while discovering how to paint with a limited palette from 1 to 4 p.m., Monday and Tuesday, July 6 and 7.
Students will be guided on establishing composition, tinting the canvas, building the underpainting, and adding layers of color to finish their paintings. Murphy will demonstrate his process step-by-step, giving participants plenty of time to paint after the demo. This class is for high beginner and intermediate painters. The cost is $65 per person.
Murphy has committed himself to capturing on canvas the scenic environments throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. The same majestic landscapes and seascapes that inspired early California plein air painters such as Edgar Payne, Hanson Puthuff and William Wendt provide audience to the artist’s unrestrained style. Further afield, extensive travels to exotic locales including China, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Hawaii, and Alaska have resulted in impressive collections of oil paintings, while fostering the artist’s creativity and global awareness.
Registration is required for all workshops. To register, go to www.rehobothartleague.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 302-227-8408, Ext. 112. All registered students will receive an invitation by email the day before the workshop with a link to join the class on Zoom.
