Beauty in Brushwork: learning to suggest form & feeling with each mark
Dates: November 2 & 3
Location: Springville, UT at Leslie’s private studio / address provided after registration
Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM / break for lunch 12:30 - 1:30 pm

This workshop is a two-day intensive study of oil painting. All skill levels are welcome, as Leslie will be working one-on-one with students for the majority of the workshop.
This course will focus on developing brushwork that is both interesting and emotive. We will be reviewing the work of master artists; practice mark marking with simple set-ups; and experiment with a variety of tools. This course will also provide greater insight into oils as a medium, as well as fundamentals such as composition, drawing and edges. We’ll also cover strategies to arrange your still life.
Leslie will bring her own unique aesthetic and explain how she combines the fundamentals of painting to create pieces that are unique, simple and full of life.
Each morning Leslie will do a group painting demonstration. Following each painting demonstration, the students will set up still life compositions of their own and paint them from life, while receiving one-on-one instruction.
