“I create with a childlike, energetic spirit. I combine geometric shapes and organic forms into work that feeds the mind with wonder, reflection and question.”

In this one-day workshop you will paint a landscape with acrylics and add a finishing touch with photo collage. Contemporary painting techniques and mixed media will be explored. Students are encouraged to bring photographs of people, animals, and vehicles.

Keith is a Jacksonville native who graduated from UNF with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design and has a master of Arts degree in Business from Webster University.  He has his studio at Cork Arts District and teaches acrylic painting at UNF.

              March 21, 2020 (Saturday) ~ Randy Pitts (Oil – plein air)
              Creating Dynamic Landscapes Alla Prima

                   “We will explore how to paint a convincing landscape wet into wet using oils.  We will learn to accurately judge values, effectively use edges, and mix subtle colors in order to create the illusion of depth in a landscape. We will be looking to interpret the impression of the landscape and not merely dictating what’s in front of us.”
                     Randy will demo in the morning and give individual help at each student’s easel as they paint in the afternoon.
                     Randy is devoted to painting the landscape on location and the challenges of capturing the light, form and shape it provides.
                     The workshop will  be held at Beth Haizlip’s beautiful yard on Doctors Lake, Fleming Island.

              • 1834 Waterbury Lane, Fleming Island, FL 32003
              • 9:30 – 4:00 pm Limit 15 people
              • AGOP Members $75   Non-members $95
