Will McCarthy will be teaching a workshop, “Atmospheric Landscapes” at the Rowayton Arts Center (RAC) during the weekend of April 27 and 28, from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and 11 am to 3 pm on Sunday. Back by popular demand, this workshop will inspire your imagination and loosen up your flow. William McCarthy engages the artist by sharing the techniques that enable him to paint from his imagination and achieve an atmospheric style that captures, in essence, the beauty and the emotion of the landscape.
The day will begin with a lecture and demonstration and launches into a full day of painting and interaction. The second day will consist of starting new works as well as finishing up the previous day’s work, adjusting tone and adding detail bringing out the best in each image. Both oil and acrylic painters are welcome. The concepts taught are applicable to all. However, if you paint in acrylics, be sure to bring your own paints.
Will McCarthy is a nationally-known artist whose works are in numerous public and private collections. He shows regularly in the Northeast and has been featured in American Artist Magazine. In addition to his workshops at RAC, he teaches workshops in Farnese, Italy and, recently, in Fort Lauderdale, FL. For more information visit williammccarthyfineart.com.
