WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Through painting sessions, demos, and critiques, Duane Keiser will lead a challenging 2-day workshop on premier coup painting. Premier coup, or “first strike,” is a painting done with the intent of finishing it in one sitting. Like Jazz, premier coup can be wonderfully improvisational while also requiring a high degree of precision and control. Duane will share his various strategies, techniques, and ways of thinking about painterly exploration of a subject within the confines of a moment.

BIO

Duane Keiser studied painting under Raymond Berry at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia and Lennart Anderson at Brooklyn College in NYC. His “A Painting a Day” blog has been written about in numerous publications, including USA Today, The New York Times and The Huffington Post. Using a makeshift easel made from a cigar box, he makes a postcard-sized painting each day and posts them to his blog where collectors can bid on them via eBay. The project is ongoing and can be seen here. He is also known for his “painted animations.” A modern take on the still life, these videos combine traditional painting, animation, and time-lapse.

He has exhibited at Fischbach Gallery, Allan Stone Gallery and, most recently, the New York Academy of Art. His work resides in several corporate collections and thousands of private collections worldwide, including the Gregory Peterson Collection.

He currently lives and works in Richmond, VA
