From Drab to Fab, Hudson River Valley Art, Greenville, NY Apr 7 to 13


So many decisions go into making a successful painting. We will look at several of them over the days we have together:  color choices, capturing the light, designing to tell a story, how to add drama and so much more. 


We will be learning about:


  • how to overcome local color and see in (more) exciting color

  • using the reference photo (usually “drab”) to advantage (“fab!”)

  • the beauty of color harmony

  • how valuable grays can be in the color choices you make

  • capturing the elusive light that brings your painting to life

  • ways to tell an interesting story

  • designing for impact



All of these elements will help you turn your paintings from drab to fab!


All mediums welcome.
