Workshops


I teach workshops in Calgary & surrounding areas, and on location when requested. Come join me and discover (or rediscover!) a love for painting! All my workshops have a few fundamentals: you’ll explore using design, color, temperature, value, saturation, and shape/edges. We also discuss light and shadow patterns, perspective, form and of course, drawing. My workshops are open to painters working in oils or acrylics.

FLORALS FROM LIFE in Oils or Acrylics

Saturday, August 25 – 9:30-4:30
Location:
Cheryl Peddie Studio
Course Fee: $100.00
Max Number of Students: 4

I recently returned from a trip from France, where I painted in Claude Monet’s famous gardens! So I’m very excited to share what I know about painting florals from life, with you. They are often a favourite subject because of their beautiful colour and pretty forms. However they can often end up more challenging than students expect. In this class you’ll learn how to:
– see the structure and design of a floral arrangement through the use of light and shadow
– block in your composition so that you’ll end up with interesting planes and form
– and then proceed upwards through layers of paint to add volume, loose brushwork and final, sparkling details
We’ll also be talking about the importance of color temperature, value, saturation, and edges. I will be supplying flowers so we can paint from life. But don’t be daunted… I encourage ‘cheating’ for beginners! (ie, you may take a photo and use it to help you create your painting!)

Revel in the warm tones of painting the autumn landscape. Learn to mix those tricky oranges and reds without creating mud! And as with all my courses, learn to use value sketches and notans to create a successful design with a compelling light and shadow pattern. You’ll also learn how to deal with trees, as they begin to shed their leafy foliage and expose their bare branches and structure. Many students struggle to maintain a sense of form and volume when painting bare trees – and begin to dread it. But I’ll teach you how to see and handle them without fear – you’ll begin to love painting them as much as I do!

This workshop is great for students who wish to understand and improve their ability to draw in perspective. Learn about the different types of perspective, and how to draw more accurate proportions, angles and shapes. Students will also learn to create the right balance between simplification and detail for architectural elements (such as windows & doorways, stairs, balconies, gables, columns and porches). We’ll also work on creating beautiful, coloured neutrals and create a solid plan for lights and shadows. Beginning students can choose a more simplified scene, such as the front of a house; more advanced students are welcome to choose a scene with more elements and perspectives, such as the view down a roadway.

Students will receive a handout of supplies, suggestions, and studio address upon registration. To register: Pay securely online with Paypal or Call Cheryl for Visa/MC or E-transfer at 403-201-6532
