Boston Art~ How to Paint Glass

Light and Glass are exquisite playmates. Sometimes bending, sometimes bouncing, light penetrates glass and splashes color like liquid. Learn to paint the exhilarating effects of tinged illumination in a 4-day oil painting workshop given by Melody Phaneuf at Fenway Studios, Boston.
Focus is on painting the elusive transparency of glass within a simple still life arrangement. Immerse yourself in a traditional approach to oil painting in ideal, north light studio conditions.
Workshop is April 18-21, from 1:00–3:30; cost is $295. Space is limited. A list of supplies will be provided.
