Oil Painting Workshop

The Spring Island Trust will offer an oil painting class given by visiting artist James Sulkowski from January 23rd through the 26th from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. daily. For more information, please email us at info@springisland.com.


In this workshop, James Sulkowski discusses the effects of light and atmosphere as they relate to forms in space. This timeless Old Master approach results in a luminous painting full of depth and rich in color. The palette, background colors, composition, form and texture will also be a focus of this workshop.

The quality and characteristics of various flowers and still life objects such as glass, copper, porcelain and more are broken down to their simplest concepts.

Demonstrations plus personal instruction will enable the student to understand, simplify and apply these classic principles to their own work.
