Learn how to see the light, shadow and movement in a still life and make expressive marks to instill energy and life into the subject.
In this two-day workshop, students will start with an under-painting using a subtractive method to get the darks and lights along with a solid composition set. For this, we will use a fast dry oil paint. Next we will learn how to block in while keeping in mind areas that we will draw out more detail and where we will want to have larger more expressive marks for a more abstracted feel. During the workshop, the artist will demonstrate painting techniques, panel prep with oil paint ground, photographing reference material and application of gold leafing. The students will have ample time to paint while the instructor gives individualized instruction.
Andie creates still life paintings with a plein air quality. By setting up objects outside in the sun with white cloth behind them, she captures the lighting of the shadows and the movement in the wind of the objects. The paintings are about movement, light and capturing a moment in time as well as the objects themselves.
She attended College of Charleston in the beautiful city of Charleston, South Carolina. There she studied life drawing and painting as a studio art major. After earning her BFA from College of Charleston, she continued her art education at Portfolio Center, School for Advertising Arts in Atlanta where she studied graphic design. She worked for over fifteen years as an award-winning graphic designer in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Saint Louis before returning to her first love, painting.
