The January 2018 lecture and workshop offered by the distinguished artist Bill Scott was a highlight of the year for students who learned how he structured pictorial space in his paintings. Bill will return to Staunton to expand on his techniques of painting lively, non-traditional still life arrangements in ways that emphasize the underlying abstraction of shapes, colors, lines and values. “In my own painting practice, I am an abstract painter but my pictures are based on observation,” Bill explains. He has had a remarkable career as a writer, gallery director, art historian, and painter. He worked in the studio of Joan Mitchell and has contributed essays to catalogs for exhibitions of Berthe Morisot’s paintings. Workshop for oil and acrylic painters.  A materials list will be provided after registration.
