Dan McCaw's workshop at 3Kicks Fine Art Studio
May 25th 2:00 to 5:00 PM
Dan McCaw is one of America’s most highly respected contemporary impressionists. McCaw has been the subject of feature articles in Art Voices South, Southwest Art, Western Art Digest, International Fine Art Collector and Island Scene Magazine. Dan also completed a book entitled A Proven Strategy for Creating Great Art. His work may be found in many national and international, private and corporate collections.
Joseph Todorovitch is a young contemporary painter who has developed a reputation for his highly representational figure paintings. Joseph has just received the First Honor Award and People's Choice Award at the 2008 Portrait Society of American International Portrait Competition. http://www.pr.com/press-release/80906
His work is a culmination of these forces with a deep respect for the knowledge and sensitivities of the past. Joseph has been able to sift through the vast amount of information, be selective, and utilize what's necessary to achieve an impact that speaks about a personal experience with his subjects. His paintings emote, and convey a care and sensitivity that is reminiscent of the naturalist painters of the 19th century. Utilizing subtle value and temperature shifts, fine draughtsmanship, and pure intuition, Joseph weaves a world of breathable air and psychological nuance in his work.
Description of workshop
Painting a figure from life and discuss choices for setting up the pose, composition, color harmony, lighting, pacing, and bringing the painting to a decent level of resolve. Joseph will explain his approach and demonstrate by painting along and illustrating his ideas about the approach. The workshop will consist of three six hour sessions in consecutive days. Previous drawing experience is highly recommended.
