John Anderson, The Magic of Oil: fluctuating emphasis of light and shadow

anderson1THIS WAS OUR 2015 WORKSHOP:

(this year with plein air component!)

Sunday, July 12 to Friday, July 17
5 days, $495 + HST
Beginners to experienced artists welcome!

I don’t know anyone who knows and can convey so knowledgeably and with such enthusiasm, everything there is to know about painting in OIL: light, colour, composition, design, paint-mixing, brush-handling and paint application – all of which John ensures are learnable skills.

John interweaves his workshop with art history and painting tradition and a contemporary approach to ‘plein air’ painting – painting outside on the spot. The voices of colour, and the use of those voices in the language of art-making, is not as easy as ABC. It takes some work to become familiar with process and practice and figuring out what it is that you are trying to say with your work.

We will explore and play with those ideas for few days of painting joy.

In his own words: I paint because that’s what I do. Within me are ways of seeing which are mine although they are built upon many traditions from generations of artists and their practices long before me. Painting is a way for me to express what I see. Charles Hawthorne, a noted New England painter of the 1920′s, wrote that we have a duty to find beauty in the ordinary. I look for elements of beauty within anything that light touches.
My work evolved from an oil painter’s perspective of brush on canvas. I use paint tonally applied with rich colour and an impressionist character. The subject does not drive the composition for me but light does. Movement throughout my work is driven by the interplay of warm and cool colour. Fluctuating emphasis of light and shadow along with the use of lost and found edges enhances that movement.
