I have learned that I will never give up on practice.  Often it is the process that I enjoy more than the finished piece. Each piece of work I do I call practice. You will learn to paint from your heart,   Do you feel like you are missing something?  It's not about talent.  It is about applying your love of something that you know is in you.  I will help you discover that inner passion of art that has begun to come out in you or you have just realized this is something you would love to discover. Know each of us will have a beautiful and different outcome.  You will be loved as I walk along side you.  I will break down every step, show you my palette as I paint and see me mixing colors then laying that color down.  

I am a artist who loves realism.  It’s where I first started as an artist in art college studying illustration.  It is important to gain the fundamentals that will make your art strong and loved by others. With those fundamentals we can play!
Playtime with painting is getting loose with our edges, finding texture, light and dark.  An amazing thing will happen, you will find emotion without even trying.  
Here are some of the exciting things we will find as we come to the easel. 
* The energy from a stroke of paint from our brushstroke. 
* Color, tone and mixing colors.  
* How to lay down our paint.
* Transparency and opaqueness
* How to find a painterly style
* Loose edges.
* Why I need strong shapes to help my composition.
* How do I sketch with paint?
* Can I create a acute likeness? 
* What is a indirect and direct method of painting.
* We will study Portraiture
* How to work from a photograph.

* We will breakdown the face into shapes and planes.
