Register to join LPAPA Signature Artist Camille Przewodek as she leads an online Virtual Mentor Session, Sunday March 7, 2021, 10 am PT (11 am MT; 12 noon CT, 1 pm ET). Camille will come to you live-streamed to share lessons and critique works submitted by registrants to help you Capture the Effect of Light with Color!
“Make a lot of starts—wait till later to try to finish things.”—Charles Hawthorne
Camille shares: The “start”, or first statement you make, is the foundation of your painting. If there is one overriding goal I have in teaching my classes & workshops, it is to convey to my students the fundamental importance of making a strong and accurate statement of hue relationships at the very beginning. Value and saturation are also important, but, as colorists, our mission is to see and capture the “light key,” and that’s most effectively accomplished by beginning to work immediately with the color relationships. This direct color approach is indicative of the Cape School method where we are taught that everything we see is seen in a particular light, and that we can greatly expand the gamut with which we can express the light falling on our subject by learning to see and accurately express hue differences at the outset. To emphasize this, we’ve come up with a memorable motto, “Hues on first!”
Once the student has established a strong start, which Hawthorne considers the more important phase, the student can then go on and, taking care to not lose the strength of this first statement, make additional color changes and variations to further develop the painting. But always remember, a strong start is crucial. As my husband says, “If you don’t get a good start, you’re finished.”
Camille’s lesson includes a critique of works submitted by registrants and Q&As with attendees. Instructions for submitting your painting for Camille’s critique will be included in the registration confirmation email (due to time constraints, not all submissions will be critiqued live, however, the lessons shared in the critique will benefit all, and all registrants will receive Camille’s feedback). All registrants will have exclusive access to rewatch the event recording.
As an example, here is a recording of Camille’s interview with Eric Rhoads, and her demo of her ONLINE color study program: Watch Video Recording.
Registration is required to be eligible to submit a painting for critique consideration and to receive the Zoom event access link for the live-stream. The deadline to register to submit a painting for critique is 10 am Wednesday March 3rd. After the 3rd, you may still register to attend and watch the live critique session. Deadline to register for the live stream event is 5 pm Saturday, March 6th; registrants after 5pm on the 6th will receive access to the recording, however, access to the live event can not be assured.
All registrants will receive a private link giving them exclusive access to rewatch the recording after the live event. The Session is expected to be 60-90 minutes.
As an added bonus, at the close of the live Mentor Session, LPAPA will draw the name of a participating artist in attendance who will win the opportunity to have a 20-minute private critique session with Camille! The private session will be a scheduled Zoom conference during the month following the live event and may include a critique of up to 3 of the drawing winner’s paintings. LPAPA will also be giving away other cool goodies at the end of the session!
