Robert Johnson Workshop, November 9 - 13, 2015
Monday - Friday, 9AM - 4PM, $650
Robert will emphasize that seeing with freshness, honesty and great clarity is a fundamental tool to create powerful paintings. The instructor will offer demonstrations and individual instruction focused on exploring time tested principles of painting. The class will work from still lifes and florals. Careful observation and control of values, color and edges will be taught as a means of achieving realistic honesty in a painting while preserving the magical and mysterious quality present in great works of art. The beauty and expressive power of the paint itself will be emphasized. The individual brush stroke will be stressed as a means to depict form, achieve expressive power, and maintain a painting's freshness. For all levels. This is an oil painting workshop.

_Recently I was asked to compile a photographic record of a painting in progress to be used in connection with an article on my work that was published in the May '03 issue of "The Artists Magazine" currently available. I photographed several still lifes in their various stages of completion. I thought it might be of interest to those who visit the web site to see my basic approach to completing a painting as represented in these stages.
Here is "Roses In A Persian Vase with Apricots"[16x20], and “Gladiolas and Melons”[16x20].
In addition, I have added these two pieces that were short demonstrations of still life done during a workshop in Oct 2002 at Liliedahl Fine Arts. These demonstrations were part of the workshop to assist students in the depiction of metallic surfaces such as copper, and painting flowers in a clear glass container. The first is “Copper Cup with Rose and Grapes” then “Flowers in a Crystal Vase”.
Both of these subjects involve their own particular problems and the demonstrations illustrate my approach to solving them.
In addition, these demonstrations are included in a C.D. under production by Liliedahl Fine Arts. The C.D. will contain more than 100 still images of each of the paintings in progress together with my printed commentary on the stages of the paintings' progress.
Please contact Liliedahl Fine Arts for further details.
I hope that you find this helpful and informative.
