Workshops are normally an intense 3-4 days of inspiration, satisfying work and productive learning with David Coburn.
Coburn begins with a theoretical introduction followed by a simple “one go” demonstration focusing on bold composition and high contrast, with an understanding of the basic elements of design. Through this demo, painters will learn how to make quick decisions, eliminate unnecessary detail, and simplify their subject to achieve the most impact. Discussions cover color theory, tonal range, form, shapes, visual vocabulary, and lost and found edges. After the demo, painters will have free time to work while David assists their works in progress. An apero/crtique on the work of the day finishes off the afternoon before rest time, and a gourmet dinner. On day 2, David will do a second demo, focused on an additional learning point, and continue to guide participants through their own works in progress. Apero/Critique/Dinner to follow.
On day 3 of the workshop, another demo, more assisted painting, and then, a final critique session in which every participant shows their best work ever produced. The critique/commentary ensures that painters return home not only realizing how much they have learned, and with a clear understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of their paintings, but they’ll also feel proud of their achievement, and eager to share their art with others.
