• Capturing the Light, Interior Workshop

    Jackson Art Studio and Gallery, Jackson, NH

    February 17-18, 2024

    In this two day workshop, Amy teaches painters how to emphasize the light in an interior, regardless of the room you choose to paint.  Whether subdued or spectacularly lit, light directs the viewer to a particular space in a room or an object, and has the ability to create an emotional response, as the interior generally stimulates memories of season, time of day, or feelings about a particular space in a home.  Second, Amy will also approach the interior using an alla prima painting style; a single session painting.  Alla prima painting encourages a spontaneous approach to paint, the brush, and the paint surface.Participants in last year’s interior workshop can expect to take their work to a more advanced level, but new participants are very welcome to attend as well.Please bring printed images of images from your favorite spaces.  Take photos in which strong light and shadow are present.  Amy will send participants examples of spaces prior to the workshop.
