The Art of Still Life Painting

Instructor

Pamela C. Newell

Pamela C. Newell earned her BFA at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. Her landscape and still life paintings are created in soft pastel or oil and reflect her love of nature. As a Master Gardener she has a special affinity for flowers, but also enjoys painting the landscape. She uses rich color to describe light and mood and paints “en plein air”, or from life in the studio. She is a Signature Member of Oil Painters of America, the American Impressionist Society and of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society. She is a sought-after instructor and is an Indiana Artisan. Her work is found in the Permanent Collection of the Richmond Art Museum and many private and corporate collections.

About the Class

Fill all your work with light and energy and hone your skills, by painting a still life with a well-constructed composition featuring your favorite objects.

Bring a favorite vase, a flow blue pitcher, cut melon, onions, fruit, pastries, bird’s nest, copper vessel, favorite fresh flowers, or foliage – whatever inspires you to paint! Lights, stands, and backdrop stations and some supporting objects are provided.

We will discuss the principals of fine art as inspired by the Masters; and have discussions about values, hard and soft edges, transparent vs. opaque color, focal point, brushwork, palette knife and more. Learn to paint glass, metal and ceramic objects and how to create depth.

There will be an instructor demo and lots of individual attention. This workshop is open to all skill levels and styles; some drawing or painting experience is recommended. The main emphasis is on oil or pastel painting; however, all media are welcome.

Students provide all workshop materials. PLEASE BRING A PORTABLE OR TABLETOP EASEL. A materials list is found on Pam’s website.
