Painting with Matisse with Annie O'Brien Gonzales
Learn about color and fluidity in the style of master painter Henri Matisse. Learn to create loose, expressive paintings of richly colorful interiors by studying the master of hues — French Expressionist painter Henri Matisse. Sante Fe artist Annie O’Brien Gonzales will teach Matisse’s approach to the elements of painting: contrasting areas of pure saturated colors; flattened pictorial spaces; simplicity as a conscious choice; and Matisse’s “Intimist” focus-interiors, still life, portraits, and windows. Students will learn how to incorporate acrylic paint, pastels, pencils and collage in their work during this fun workshop for painters of all levels. PLEASE NOTE: Students should bring their lunches, as well as the required materials.
