OGUNQUIT SUMMER SCHOOL OF ART - OGUNQUIT MAINE

MIKEL WINTERMANTEL, C.M. PAINTING ON COPPER WORKSHOP

3 DAY  PLEIN AIR PAINTING on COPPER WORKSHOP - AUGUST 19 - 21, 2015   ($375) 


Learn to paint radiant, expressive paintings on copper metal sheets in a comprehensive 3 day workshop with Copley Master Mikel Wintermantel.
Instruction will include a thorough understanding of the entire process from start to finish, beginning with how to prepare the copper sheet, applying
the oil or alkyd paint, protecting the painting upon completion and various methods of mounting and displaying the finished painting. Painting on copper
metal is a time honored tradition that has stood the test of time. Copper paintings as old as 600 years show little signs of degradation.

The process Wintermantel has developed takes complication out of the traditional technique. He will use his limited, 7 color, high key, high chroma
palette to produce vibrant, luminous paintings. Whether you paint alla prima or indirectly, the smooth copper substrate shows all the expression of each
brushstroke, keeping the work fresh whether painting en plein air or in the studio.

I am personally excited to have Mikel Wintermantel traveling from New York to share his painting, instruction and artistic spirit with us for three special
days in August. I have already taken the time off from work and will be taking this class myself. Having been a fan of his work for many years, I find his
composition, simplification of complex forms and most of all his stunning use of highly chromatic color to be inspiring. I'm really looking forward to absorbing
as many nuggets of wisdom as I can. I hope you will be able to join us for three days of artistic immersion with this brilliant painter in this quaint little harbor
village. - Todd Bonita
