Brenda Lyness has won Best in Show at the at the Barnes and Noble Winter Show of the PAA (Penfield Art Association). The title, “The Erosion of Faith, Hope, and Charity” (mixed media) featured the faces of three women with a veil of transparent, dripping charcoal over their faces, as if, Faith, Hope and Charity were eroding. Brenda was inspired to create this piece when she was moved by the 2017 turmoil in our country, and personally experienced the erosion of basic kindness and respect in our culture.
Textural Still Life in Oil With Acclaimed Artist, Katherine Stone
May 21-26, 2018
Registrations now open to Rochester Art Club and New York Figure Study Guild members only!
Opens to the public December 15, 2017
Learn some new tricks from award winning still life painter, Katherine Stone. Kate will share her four-step process for paint layering derived from the Academic painting tradition. With the help of a slideshow of close up photos of her own work, Kate will also share her techniques for creating textural and optical effects.
While students work on their individual paintings, particular emphasis will be placed on using the natural behavior of oil paint to arrive at convincing textures. Katherine will share her own approach to tackling wood grain, fur, reflections, shadows, and peeling paint. She will also discuss artistic choices in paint application: when to impasto, when to scumble, when to glaze. Students will leave the class with a logical step-by-step approach to still life and new confidence when confronted with complex textures and challenging visual effects.
