Seeing Patterns in Art, the Alternate Vision – Suitable for all levels of painters.

Instructor: Carl Purcell Hillside Rhythms Carl Purcell

Workshop Description

Because we are trained to name and identify everything, most people never look past this to see the underlying unifying patterns of colour, line and shape that make up our visual experience. Artists have been responding to these patterns for centuries, yet they are not a part of the common knowledge. In this workshop Carl will teach you how to see and respond to these patterns as artists do. In three steps you can have a painting that will appear loose, realistic and unified. When you respond to patterns instead od things, many problems disappear. Carl will cover how to get sparkling, vivid colour, rich darks, and a degree of realism that may amaze you. The appearance of reality is found in these hidden patterns of Nature, and not in minute details as commonly believed.

Thursday, May 24, Friday, May 25, and Saturday, May 26  (9:00 AM – 3:30 PM)

All Purpose Rm – Southern Alberta Ethnic Assoc. Bldg., Corner 5 St. S. & 6 Ave. S.
