6.6.19 Bee Adams – JuneBug Retro Resort

 

A number of AULP braved the unpredictable weather for this month’s Demo. Bee Adams presented us with a lively and colorful acrylic painting, drenched in exotic summer color! She gave us many helpful tips about using acrylic paints & her personal color theory. Also interesting was her set-up and how she used it.

The venue was lovely and varied, something for every artist to focus on. And …. the rain held off and some lovely paintings were produced. Check out the gallery.

5.16.19 Richard Oversmith-Wild Cat Ridge Peony Farm, Clyde

Richard Oversmith was our May Demo artist. After the Demo and a morning spent painting, the artists came together for a wonderful lunch prepared by Chef Ricardo (owner of the farm).
 
Sandy Moore’s comment about the demo:

I was very interested in how and why he chose his subject to paint.” … “He chose a backlit subject, then added the light shapes of the flowers against the dark background, then he deleted shapes to simplify the painting. He is an excellent demonstrator! Something for everyone…even a watercolor painter.”

Ben Hamburger launched our 2019 season with a great demo at the French Broad River Park. We also had the first truly beautiful spring day with a great artist turn out.

Ben started by blocking in the under-painting in acrylics. His subject was a tree, with character, by the river. He finished the painting in oils. Ben was very gracious answering all of our questions. We had a wonderful painting day.

10.9.18 Mitchell Lee Kolbe-Sherrill’s Inn, Fairview

 

 

Mitchell Lee Kolbe ended our Paint-Out season on a very high note!
 
James Cassara’s comment:

Did this one (see Gallery for James Cassara’s painting) right after Mitch Kolbe’s terrific demo on Tuesday. Very different approach for me, far more reliance on Earth tones and even using a bit of Mars black. But I am over all pretty happy with the results.”

9.4.18 Brian Murphy – at Montreat

 

 

Brian Murphy believes in the basics.
 
Sandy Moore’s comment “Thanks for sharing your unique way of painting with us. The simplicity of your set up is amazing.”

He feels that you don’t have to have the fanciest equipment to produce great paintings … and he proves it! A cigar-box easel, gator board backing for his canvas, inexpensive brushes and a very minimum pallet! He also knows how to pick his scenes! A great paint-out at Montreat, North Carolina.
