Dan Graziano

Figures in Everyday Places




Friday, Saturday & Sunday

 April 26, 27 & 28, 2024

9:00 am - 4:00 pm



This workshop will focus on painting “alla prima,” quickly painting “wet on wet” and developing greater skills of observation and simplification to create strong artistic and “painterly” paintings. You will work from photo references of figures in everyday places, creating paintings that capture the artistic “magic” which can be found in the most common subjects. Instruction will include a short painting demo by Dan each day, with explanation of his process along the way. You will then do timed painting exercises, incorporating the techniques discussed with plenty of one-on-one individual instruction throughout each day. You are encouraged to bring your own photos to paint from.
