The Intermediate Oil 3-day Workshop will be a study of the still life that goes beyond the basics and adds more elements and details. Nicole will discuss how to achieve different textures within the painting including, glass, metal, and fabric. Please bring 2-5 objects to paint from. This class will arrange a more complex still life with your items and light them to get the most dynamic composition. Nicole will do a demonstration combining her beginning stages of an indirect painting and how to use many layers of color to build up a rich and detailed painting. You'll work on many skills and techniques to bring your painting to completion with a more in depth look into creating convincing shadows, edge work, glazing, and highlights. This a great class for someone with a little experience in painting or drawing but all levels are welcome.

The Advanced Oil 3-day Workshop is an in depth class on how to create a narrative still life. We will go over composition and how to design a still life that tells a personal story. The importance of doing studies will be discussed either in the form of drawings or paintings. Nicole will demonstrate how she layers color over her Brunaille to produce depth and realism. She will show how to give transparency to the shadows and use opacity in the areas with more light to help create atmosphere and depth. This class will break down the steps that Nicole uses to create an elaborate still life that captures the essence and energy of the objects. Basic drawing skills and some experience with oil painting would be helpful for this course.
