In this workshop Barbara will work in the alla- prima style of painting – wet on wet.  She will also focus on composition, value, lights, shadows, and color mixing, along with learning about transparent colors vs. opaque.  She will take it slow so students can absorb a little each day.  If you have never painted with oils, this will be a great introduction.  And, if you already have some experience, you will still learn something new!  Using a fruit still-life, Barbara will start the learning process by “seeing”.  She calls it – “meditation in action”, because we become so absorbed in doing the process we are not thinking about anything else.”

Barbara Friedman is from the Milwaukee area and also spends time at her seasonal home in Watersmeet, MI.  She is a multi-disciplined artist, working in oils, watercolor, and stained glass. During the warmer months Barbara can be found plein-air painting in her perennial gardens, often inviting friends to join her.  During winter, she is back inside the studio to focus on stained glass art.  Barbara enjoys teaching and sharing her many talents.  She is especially motivated to teach the skills that her students will need to connect with their own creative spirit and style.
