Develop your own personal style through your painting composition and learn how to use artistry tools to their greatest potential!

Traditional art forms may appear inflexible and standard in their techniques and uses, but artist Annie O’Brien Gonzales shares otherwise in her tips and instruction. With this video workshop, you will work your way through an expressive still life painting that incorporates your favorite objects, images and patterns. By bringing the painter into the painting, your still life will take on a whole new meaning and reflect more than just paint.

This Video Features:

  • Tips for setting up a still life with items meaningful to you
  • 91 minutes of premier workshop instruction
  • In-depth instruction on how to create a still life painting from beginning to end

You will learn more than just painting techniques, however. From mark-making tips to collage inspiring techniques, you can mix creative color schemes and mixed-media components together to design a vibrant and vigorous painting. You will learn how to use the paintbrush in various ways to add depth, value, and shadow to your composition. There is freedom in this traditional art form, so discover it through your assembling of subject matter and arranging of your composition!

Customer Reviews (1)
I love, love, love Annie O'Brien's art; however, I was disappointed in this DVD. There was just too much wasted time in interaction with Amy Jones, the host. And too much time wasted on Amy's art attempt and not enough on Mrs. O'Brien's art. I wish Mrs. O'Brien would consider putting the information in this DVD into a paperback book so that more instruction could be offered and centered on her works. I really wanted all 3 of her DVDs but after reviewing them, and realizing they have the same format, I think I will save my money and hope for a book instead. Review by Verna (Posted on 3/5/2016)
