This will be a two hour presentation concerning the technical aspects of painting with oil color.
I will discuss professional versus student grade color, permanency/lightfastness, opacity/transparency, tinting power and color mixing. I will go through a brief history of color with application of these colors on canvas with an emphasis on the primaries, secondaries and white.
I will have an interactive demo concerning mediums and will have a handout with information concerning each medium that Winsor/Newton sales. Solvents, varnishes and health concerns will be discussed.
Sample packages will be given to each participant.
Larry Leach- Biography
Larry Leach taught painting and drawing for Louisiana State University during the seventies and eighties and Lamar University in Texas during the nineties. He holds a graduate degree in painting from NSU in Louisiana. Larry's work for the last thirty years has mostly been concerned with the rendering of the landscape in oils. His favorite theme is the first strong light of dawn and the last strong rays of sunset that rake across an unhampered landscape. He is a studio painter and works from memory or watercolour sketches. Selected collections of his work include: The Art Museum of Southeast Texas, Alexandria Museum of Art in Louisiana, President George and Barbara Bush, Brevard Museum of Art in Melbourne, Florida, Four 4'x22' paintings for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, Florida State Department of Health, Florida State Department of Revenue, and the Kaiser Corporation Headquarters in Atlanta, Ga. Leach's work can be also viewed in Several galleries in Florida, Georgia and Texas.
