THERE ARE OPENINGS IN THE WORKSHOP  2/12/2020 - 2/14/2020 


WORKSHOP - LOOSEN UP!

Three day workshop is for all skill levels from beginner to advanced.  The first half of morning/afternoon Derek will paint a painting from a photo to demonstrate his process from start to finish using oil paint. The second half of the morning/afternoon the students will paint with Derek’s guidance. Students are also welcome to bring a painting previously painted for Derek to critique.


Students will use oils (acrylics are OK) to paint from photos. They will have a choice of dozens of photographs consisting of boats, cityscapes, figures, and fish. Students will also have the option to paint from their own photos if they choose.

Derek will cover topics such as the power of warms and cools, complementaries, harmony, edges, shape-quality, variety, simplifying, loosening brushwork, elements of design, elements of light and shadow and the power of suggestion. There will be a strong emphasis on seeing in terms of mass and shape relationships.

ABOUT DEREK PENIX            https://derekpenix.com

Derek Penix was born on December 29, 1980, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Derek grew up watching members of his family paint but didn't pursue painting himself until after high school. After trying his hand at painting and selling his first piece he knew this was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. 


Over the years Derek's work has changed greatly and continues to evolve with each painting. "I never want to be stuck painting only one way or only one subject matter. Variety is the spice of life and is especially that way for me with painting."


Derek has had the opportunity to work under Quang Ho and later with C.W. Mundy. "They have helped me as an artist immensely. I am so thankful that they have been willing to feed into my life as they have."  


Derek has been recognized in many national competitions and publications. Even at a young age, Penix was recognized in Southwest Art Magazine's “21 Under 31” artist competition in 2010, and Oklahoma Magazine's "40 Under 40" in 2014. To date, Derek's most notable award has been the 2016 "Gold Medal Award" from Oil Painters of America 25th National Juried Exhibition, boasting a $30,000 prize. Derek currently lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Learning how to see, how to look at your subject and how to judge it, that's the essence of his impressionistic method.  So Joe  will encourage you to show excitement and emotions to bring your paintings alive.
