Do you sometimes find yourself worrying about ruining a painting and afraid to keep going? Or getting so caught up in the details of a painting that it comes out looking hesitant, awkward, and overworked? You can’t just tell yourself to stop worrying and paint boldly? Join painter Jeff Wrench in a series of actionable exercises and learn fun and effective techniques to create carefree, loose and expressive paintings!
What will you learn in this class?
● How to paint fast, bold portraits.
● How to avoid getting stuck in details leading to hesitant, awkward, overworked paintings.
● Specific techniques to stop you from worrying about the outcome of paintings.
● Specific techniques to help you paint more expressively and loosely.
● How color works & popular misconceptions about color.
● How to use color boldly but pleasingly.
● How to make painting fun with little “games” to help you want to paint more often.
These are portrait painting demos, but the techniques can be applied to any subject.
Demo 1 – Fifteen-Minute “Speed Painting” (31min)
This painting exercise (or game?) will push you to be “in the moment” while painting, to work with big gestures and stay out of the details. Because it’s fast and fun it will help you paint more often, even when you have very little time.
Demo 2 – The Shocking Truth About Color (55min)
This video covers the basics of how color works, and common misconceptions about Primary Colors, Color Wheels, and Color Harmony combinations. I discuss my ideas about good use of color in painting, and how to use colors boldly but still harmoniously.
Demo 3 – Painting Anywhere Anytime (48min)
This is a demo of something I enjoy a lot: using a portable paint kit to work at a cafe or fast food restaurant.
Demo 4 – Parallel Painting (55min)
Parallel Painting is another way to turn the painting process into a little game, which might distract you from worrying about the painting. You work on multiple paintings at the same time — switching back and forth as you change colors — so you are less emotionally attached to any particular painting, allowing you to be more expressive and experimental.
Demo 5 – Yardstick Paintbrush (1hr 36min)
One of my favorite ways to start a painting is the somewhat comical Yardstick Paintbrush. It forces you to stay out of the details and focus on the “big picture”, and use larger muscle groups (arms instead of fingers) — leading to loose and expressive brush work. And it’s yet another way to have fun painting!
Interval Timer (15min)
A custom Interval Timer to prompt you through the Fifteen-Minute Speed Painting exercise.
