Beauty in the Ordinary

Intermediate Painting Workshop

Problem Solving Your Paintings

Four Day Painting Workshop with Seamus Berkeley

Three Scallions, 4″ x 9″, Oil on canvas

This 4-day workshop is designed to take you to a new level in your painting. Expand your means of expression by taking another look at composition including setup, placement, measurement and design to achieve a better result in space division, eye pathways and focal points. We will discuss brushwork and color mixing as well. The focus of this workshop will be on increasing your skills and ability to problem-solve your own work. The goal is to empower you to get what you want our of your painting. Seamus has a way of clearly expressing his in-depth knowledge of the painting process and he makes learning a pleasurable experience. He uses demonstration, discussion and one on one interaction in teaching.

This workshop is designed for intermediate students. It is open to artists who have previously attended a Seamus Berkeley workshop or for those who have some familiarity with their medium.

Note: Seamus works in oils and instruction will focus on this medium although the workshop is open to students who work in other media.
