    Finding the Fun in your Subject

    Meet Vicki Norman on Water Street in front of the HCA (Center for History, Culture and Art), 86 Water Street (between Avenues D and E). There is adequate parking along Water Street. The workshop is scheduled for Friday, March 17, starting at 9 am and ending at 4:00 pm with a lunch break. Cost is $95 per person - please register online.

    Bring a sack lunch or plan to lunch at one of the great cafes in Apalachicola.

    Ever wondered how some painters seem to be able to find a beautiful subject anywhere they go, even on a grey day on a building site? Taking a playful approach to any subject will enable us to create a personal, individual painting that expresses what we found to inspire us. Pausing to reflect on what attracts us to a scene and figuring out how to accentuate a particular aspect of our subject will encourage us to make more characterful paintings. The painting process is way more fun and playful when we are free to step away from always trying to ‘get it right’. The goal here is to move beyond simply documenting the scene before us, into a place where we can capture and communicate a personal response to any scene. Join me for a day of enjoyable exploration as we learn to fall in love with any location and figure out how to find the fun in everything!

    Please just bring your usual plein air painting kit, it’s best to stick to your familiar favourite materials and equipment for this workshop. Ideally, use a set-up that leaves your hands free. Bring painting panels or canvases in any size that you’re comfortable with, if you’re a fast worker you may want to bring 3 or more, if you prefer to take your time then 2 will suffice. Your usual palette of colours will be fine, make sure you have plenty of paint and a good selection of larger and smaller brushes. This workshop is all about taking a more relaxed and playful approach and we want to extend that mindset to our equipment too – the most important thing is that you feel comfortable with your set-up and that your surface, colours and brushes are familiar to you. 

    You will definitely require a sketchbook and pencil for planning images and making notes. 
    Please remember to pack a hat with a wide brim.

    FYI I’ll be using the following equipment and materials, but please note; this list is for reference only, please just bring whatever materials and equipment suit you best!

    Large paint book from edge pro gear on a K&F concept TM2324 tripod 
    Plastic drumstick holder clamp for a brush holder
    Raymar panel carriers in 12x16 and 11x14” sizes
    Rosemary and Co Ultimate Chunking brushes, mostly flats between size 10 and 1, a couple of eclipse long filberts, sizes 2 and 4 and a small size 3 Kolinsky sable round. I may also use round, egbert or filbert Ultimate brushes on occasion.
    Belle Arti 007 oil primed fine grain linen glued onto Gator board panels in 9x12, 11x14 and 12x16”
    Michael Harding Oil Colours in Titanium White #2, Cadmium Yellow Lemon, Indian Yellow Red Shade, Cadmium Red Light, Alizarin Claret, Ultramarine Blue, Phthalo/Cerulean blue, Cobalt violet dark, Transparent Oxide Yellow, Genuine Viridian (not phthalo green!) Lead tin yellow lemon, Cobalt blue.

    Attached is my preferred palette and my supply list. If you have these, please bring them or what you feel comfortable with!

    PAINT –

    Here is my palette. Please bring good quality paint, no student grade paints. (I find that students get frustrated with student grade or different brands of oil paint when trying to learn some of my color mixing and techniques)

    *Note Below: Different Companies may use the same color names but they are actually different hues!!!!(example – Gamblin’s Cad Yellow Deep is different from Winsor Newton’s Cad Yellow Deep).

    Please note the words: THIS IS REQUIRED

    - Titanium White (Blue Ridge Oil Colors)
    - Cadmium Lemon (Gamblin)
    - Cadmium Yellow Pale (Winsor Newton)
    - Cadmium Yellow Deep (Winsor Newton)
    - Cadmium Red Light (Gamblin) *
    - Cadmium Red Light (Rembrandt)… yes, I use two Cad Red Lights *
    - Yellow Ochre Light (Winsor Newton)
    - Viridian (Rembrandt only) THIS IS REQUIRED
    - Cadmium Red Deep (Gamblin)

    - A Glass surface to mix your paints on (no paper please). You may already have glass in your easel… If not, one inexpensive way is to purchase a picture frame at Walmart or local Goodwill... 11x14 or larger.

    - Empty, clean pizza boxes are a great way to transport wet paintings. So drop by your local pizzeria and plead your case!

    A unique feature to the Forgotten Coast event is a fully functioning Wet room which sells paintings as quickly as the artists deliver them to the check in station. The paintings are literally “wet” as they are often completed just hours before arrival. The Wet Room features the work of all invited artists. The paintings change by the hour and often art collectors arrive daily to make their selections from the most recent deliveries. Collectors from across the country watch the online gallery where each painting is photographed and posted immediately to the website. If you cannot attend in person, you may view the paintings online. A painting can be selected and easily processed over the telephone. For the cost of shipping, the painting will be delivered to your door. Simply call 800-378-8419. Open daily 11:00am-5:00pm; Closing at 3:00 pm on March 27. Also opens at 1:00pm on March 18th.
