Bob Semans is a master painter with an enormous body of knowledge and experience. Bob offers a proper introduction into using a palette as means of managing and mixing color. Students will practice painting form by paying special attention to the effects of light and shade in the studio environment.
These two-day workshops feature open instruction in oil painting, with special attention to color and how it is affected by light and shadow (chiaroscuro). Also the use of the palette as a tool in color mixing, how it can aid the mixing of colors and eliminate common problems.
