Painting Alla Prima with Greg Manchess

George Harrison, recent demonstration painting for Neil Shigley's Illustration Class at San Diego State University

Coming up this February 6th - 8th, I'm going to do a three-day painting workshop in Seattle, presented by TLC Workshops.

Tara Chang and I have put together the kind of workshop where all of us attending will jump right into painting. We'll work from photos, a model, and on the last day, reference that each attendee brings. This way, we'll be able to compare different aspects of working and not limit ourselves to one absolute approach.

This will be a raw, put-the-paint-on-the-surface-and-deal-with-it direct application of paint.  No questions are taboo and I encourage each attendee to come prepared to ask the most simple questions or to get answers for those questions they've felt awkward about asking. Let's get to the bottom of this!

We're focusing this workshop for painters who want to take the next step to developing their painting approach and looking to work for deadline. The class is limited to 12, and spaces are filling up.

Painting is a joy, and we'll be laughing all weekend, for certainly the most serious painter doesn't need to look serious.

Hope you can make it!

  2. And now there's a waiting list. Yikes! If things go well though, and everyone enjoys the workshop, I'm certain we'll schedule some more....
