How to paint FAST and GOOD – a 3-hour online workshop with Henry Tian

How to paint FAST and GOOD – a 3-hour online workshop with Henry Tian

Hello all! My name is Henry Tian and I am a professional oil painter working in the tradition of realism. I display at Art 1274 Hollis gallery. I am excited to offer an online workshop where I will show you how to simplify your subject so that you can capture the essence of the subject in a short amount of time. (The examples shown here – my son and the owl, were each painted in just 1.5 hours). Now, this is not about speed at all. It’s about developing your ability and skill to see the important visual elements that make up your subject and capture them with your paint. The speed and efficiency of how I paint is only a by-product of how I see and what I know. And I want to share that with you in this online workshop.

You will learn:

– How to use your peripheral vision to get the gestalt of your subject before the details

– How to see shapes abstractly instead of concretely

– How to see the transition between any two shapes (a key for realism)

– How to mix any color in the visual world with a basic 12-color palette

– How to make your brushstrokes effective and interesting (no more aimless dabbing, I have been there…)

– How to use the above knowledge in a painting

The structure and detail of the workshop is as follows:

– 3-hour online video session over Skype ( you can ask me questions live as I go)

– First hour is a discussion of key concepts and techniques in oil painting

– Second hour is a demo with commentaries

– Third hour is finishing the demo and group discussion

When: Saturday September 19th, 2-5pm (video replay will be provided afterwards so you can watch it over and over again if needed)

Fee: $33 (e-transfer is the preferred method of payment)

Bonus: I will send you the real-time video of how I painted my son and the owl, each in 1.5 hours only, so you can watch every step of my process. You can even watch these videos before the workshop so you can ask specific questions during the actual workshop.

Plein Air Workshop with Gordon MacDonald this SUNDAY


Would you Take a Workshop with this Man?

….we think you totally should! You’ll learn more than you could ever expect and if you have ever taken a workshop with him before this workshop is also for YOU!

THE DETAILS:
Sunday, SEPTEMBER 13th, 1:30-3:30pm, $65
Limit Class size of 10

Gordon MacDonald is known for his luminescent oil paintings but he uses many different mediums and achieves magical results using a variety of mediums. This workshop is suitable for beginners but also for anyone that has been painting for a while or folks that have taken past workshops with Gordon. He will be showing you how to work with acrylic, gouache and watercolour. Students will be using a simplified palette consisting of reds, yellows, black and white. You will also be using a variety of instruments to create including red pencils, palette knife and even your fingers in addition to regular brushes. This is truly an exploration and invitation to try something new!

We will conduct the workshop at the Dartmouth Waterfront Park. Details of meeting location will be provided upon registration. We ask that you bring a folding chair, a mason jar or yogurt container with a cover filled with water, dress the the weather on that day. If it rains the class will continue but at an alternate location.

ALL SUPPLIES will be provided in one of our ART ON THE GO kits. Afterwards you can take the kit home and continue painting too!


ALSO!  HERE ARE TWO NEW PAINTINGS BY GORDON MACDONALD THAT HAVE JUST ARRIVED! THE ONE OF THE ARMOURY has been re-worked and finally completed to his level of approval. We also love the one of the Halifax Harbour. Drop by to see these in person if possible!
