Artist Talk with David Gallup

Artist Talk with David Gallup
Altadena Town & Country Club, Altadena, CA website

Date and Time: Sunday, November 4, 2012; 2:00 – 3:30 p.m.
Cost: Free
Details: David Gallup will offer a lecture about his fascinating experience spending nearly a decade documenting the natural history and marine life of the Channel Islands Marine Sanctuary and National Park in a series of paintings. David will tell the stories which have come out of this adventure on the subject of following a calling, and how doing so has led him to paint the Channel Islands National Park.

David says, “The most surprising and thrilling aspect of doing this work was getting to know my local ocean. The density and variety of the cetacean population is absolutely startling, as is the experience of a close encounter with curious whales such as these humpbacks.”

RSVP: Email Victoria Sotomayor at or call 626/583-9009

From Field Sketch to Studio Painting with Ray Roberts – SOLD OUT!

Ray Roberts, “Valley Vista,” oil, 12″ x 16″

The class will spend approximately 2½ days outdoors developing sketches to use in creating a medium-size studio painting. Ray will demonstrate how his work in the field informs the finished painting: scouting, anticipating, painting quick color sketches (lots), pre-mixing, photo-referencing, and ultimately designing a studio painting.

In the studio, it’s all about design! In the field, you will gather information about your subject – accurate color and value and supporting elements. In the studio, this information will be edited into a finished work. Ray will walk you through your idea and assist you with your approach and strategy as you use your field sketches to create a painting that makes a visual statement.

NOTE: This workshop is completely full. Please call 626/583-9009 to be placed on a waitlist.
