Turning the Ordinary into Extraordinary
In this workshop Alexis will focus on painting the humble, ordinary subject. So often we feel like we have to find the picture-perfect subject before we can begin to paint. Yes, Palo Duro Canyon is breathtakingly spectacular. But – sometimes a fabulous subject is right at our feet, or in a corner of our home or studio, overlooked and forgotten. Let’s explore some modest subjects and see how we can turn them into extraordinary paintings – with the right combination of solid drawing, creative design, well chosen colors and values, good painting technique, imagination, humor, and fun!
