    Kendall Portis will present "Shapes: Building Blocks to Picture Making." Kendall will discuss how every good painting is rooted in a strong design composed of shapes. Not understanding this will cause the big picture to be lost to visual clutter. 

    Regardless of the subject, the painting can be broken down into three or four basic shapes. This helps to simplify the story and forces the artist to avoid chasing small, unimportant details. The first step of good storytelling is knowing what to sacrifice or edit out subordinate information to express the visual truth.

    The Lunch and Learn series is limited seating at The Joe Center for the Arts, 201 Reid Avenue, Port St. Joe, 12 noon, $15 per person, reservations required via the website.

    Simplicity & Intent: The Power of Suggestion

    ”A good brushstroke is full of character not only that of the subject, but of the painter too.” ~ Emile Gruppe

    When conceptualizing and designing a painting, Anne first implement s a method to gain a deeper understanding of values and composition before moving to any rendering. This preliminary thought process allows for more pleasing, simple designs as well as a “playground” for color and brush work. By having a loose “plan”, you can gain more confidence in laying down the paint, therefore developing a signature style. Anne will share this complete process with you and offer ways for you to employ some of the concepts as a springboard for your own painting journey.

    Lunch and Learn series is limited seating at the Center for History, Culture and Art, 86 Water Street in Apalachicola.  It begins at 12 noon, $15 per person, reservations required via the website for lunch.

    Terry will present "10 Strategies for Simplifying Cityscapes" during his presentation.  He will focus on how painting cityscapes can be extremely challenging, but by breaking down the problem into smaller, manageable concepts, and simplifying each, the task becomes much less daunting. By investigating, understanding and gaining command of each of these concepts, and employing some or all of them in executing a painting, we can approach a complex cityscape painting with confidence and control.
