Water, Water Everywhere

This workshop is all about water and how to paint it accurately and creatively. You will increase your understanding and ability to capture the color and the reflective quality of water. We will discuss ripples, waves, foam, foam holes and water’s edge…all the aspects of our ocean and shores. If you want to increase your ability to represent water in your paintings this workshop is for you. Open to all media. Proficiency in your medium is requested.

Luminous Landscapes

Whether you work en plein air, from photo references or ad lib, knowing how to create luminosity will enliven your painting. This workshop will explore key elements to achieve that “glow”: light source, dominance and temperature. We will also investigate the supporting elements: aerial perspective, believable shadows, effective use of neutrals, and creating visual trill. We will work in the studio from photo references. Demos, exercise, and plenty of easel time with individual attention are offered. All media are welcome. The instructor will be working in pastel.

Pastel Painting Evaluations

Each of us has encountered, somewhere along the painting process, a stumbling block. Something just isn't right. You can try to sneak-up on it, look backwards in a mirror, stand on your head or otherwise try to trick it into revealing the problem...to no avail. Perhaps you want to generally improve your work or have it looked at with fresh eyes. In either or both cases, I am offering an opportunity to receive feed-back on your pastel paintings. Each work will be assessed on the following components: technique, composition, value and color. A written review will be provided.

The fee for the preview of two works is $25.00, payable at PayPal.

Once your transaction is complete, you will return to a web page on this site with instructions for mailing your images to dawnemillerart@gmail.com.

I look forward to seeing your artwork.



"Each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass and a book of rules;
and each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or stepping stone."
