2016 Workshop.  3 months of drawing and painting in Bruge, Belgium!!!!

I will be teaching a 3 month atelier workshop in the beautiful city of Bruge, Belgium this March, April and May 2016.   Students will get a good grasp of the whole method behind atelier trainging from blcok-in drawing, modeling "form" value,  color studies, and painting.  This is the best way to get a overall look into what a full atelier training is like.  Come study with me and see this beautiful city this spring!

2015 workshops coming up!

March 20-22, 2015

Two Color Study workshops
Still life Color Study and
Figure Color Study
Townsend Atelier, Chattanooga TN

A color study is a mini version of your final painting done prior to starting a final painting. Students will complete an accurate drawing and small oil sketch in this three day workshop.  Discover how a color study is a great way to work out decision with composition, background and color harmony prior to starting your final piece.  Making these important decisions prior to your final painting can save hours of complications in your final work.  Plus, these color  studies make great little painting sketches on their own!
