"If there were a brick and mortar educational art institution called 'The Boston School' - the label applied rather loosely to artists who have received training from master painters whose techniques are derived from Gammell's adaptation of French atelier instruction - then Robert Douglas Hunter would surely be its Dean."
- Tree's Place Gallery
Mr. Hunter shared with me his knowledge of accurate portrayal in stilllife painting, and I have added my own stamp of lively brushwork and color. You can benefit from this lineage as I share it with you.
In this workshop you will learn how to make flowers look vibrant and alive, and how to make vases and other objects look like they are really sitting on the surface -- really occupying the space you have created on the canvas. You will learn how to arrange a compelling composition and how to render light and form.
Still life painting is a tremendously strong learning tool, and you will leave this workshop with solid knowledge which will help you become the artist you want to be.
