In the Studio With Bill Farnsworth

3-Day Oil Painting Studio Workshop

November 5-7, 2021, 9am – 4pm

The workshop will have students explore the all-important concept of values in composition and in creating believability of form. The key concepts of the clear division of light and shadow will be stressed. The first day all paintings will be done in black and while to make the lesson of values clearer. The other two days students will paint another version in color. They will learn the value of values and develop a discipline in creating a believable painting.
