This workshop will focus on basic principles essential to creating a still life in full color. Inspired by the Impressionists use of color and developed by American artist Henry Hensche, “color study” is a method of studying color based on direct observation and understanding color as influenced by the light source.

Students begin with a series of painting exercises utilizing simple objects, and learn to see the impact of the light source, and its effect on local color, temperature, value and form. The concept of “color study” will be explored in depth with the use of a full palette and then applied to painting a more developed still life. The instructor will demo and discuss each concept, followed by exercises where students put these concepts into practice. During the last two days, students will paint a longer still life using native artifacts from the Tlingit tribe, provided by the Alaska Indian Arts in Haines, Alaska.

Studio Incamminati graduate and Teaching Fellow Natalie Italiano has won numerous awards including a 2009 Portrait Society of America Certificate of Excellence and had work accepted into The Oil Painters of America 2011 Eastern Regional Exhibition.
