Townsed AtelierChattanooga TN, US

Carlos is a master at painting everyday objects and interiors in a conceptual and abstracted way.  In this three-day workshop, Carlos will teach his approach to painting the interior as subject matter including his techniques and materials, underpainting, color, composition, light treatment, how to create unity, nuance, and how to paint from a photograph.   Students will need to bring a good quality photograph from which they want to work.  There will be plenty of demos, hands-on painting time, and one-on-one time with the instructor.  Students need to have some painting and drawing experience and some knowledge of perspective.

 Join us for an all-inclusive week of oil painting in the Tuscan countryside with Carlos San Millán. This workshop will explore Carlos San Millán's painting process, focusing on how to achieve unity and coherence. Participants will practice useful methods, such as underpainting, and learn how to use chroma and light effectively, as well as different ways to use brush strokes, prints, and mark making in order to enrich and enhance your painting technique. This retreat will focus on painting possibilities, such as the interior and exterior of buildings, as well as plein air painting. Carlos will also include some discussion on drawing, color and light value concepts, and what to do when a painting isn’t working. All students will have personal attention as well as the opportunity to discuss their interests and goals.
