Oil Painting Demo Session 4
Nancy will demonstrate an exercise called “Limited Stroke” (or the Golf Exercise) that she uses to help students simplify their subject matter, using well planned, deliberate strokes with a lot of paint. No overworking or blending! The result can be a rather abstract, simple painting with wonderful surface quality and an effortless feel. She will work from a simple well lit set up in oils.
Nancy’s taste in the visual arts has moved toward a more modern and contemporary look and her own work is reflects that. She finds herself focusing more on the relationships of shape, color and line than on the actual subject. Her goal is to be less literal and more intuitive and bold in her approach. She continues to explore and experiment with new materials, techniques, and approaches.Nancy is a member of the National Association of Woman Artists, an Artist Member of the Copley Society, and a faculty member of the South Shore Art Center and the North River Arts Society. She teaches workshops throughout New England.
