Sharon's Class Demo May 27 2022
We were delighted to welcome Sharon Sprung and a group of her students from The Art Students League on May 19th to our newly reopened Chelsea showroom on West 27th Street in NYC.
Gathered around our mixing table for a color demonstration, participants taking Sharon's Painting from Life class were keen to ask and get answers to their technical questions about paint and the painting process.
How completely different each of the white pigments mix was included as we put out on the table our pure Titanium White, pure Flake White, and pure Zinc White to show the distinct changes in value, temperature and even the physical properties of the resulting mixtures. Differences between modern pigments and the traditional earth and mineral colors were demonstrated and why all are valuable for a painter's palette.
Thank you to Je and Donna for sharing the group photos!
NOCTURNE April 21 2022
Taking the 19th century painter, James McNeil Whistler, and his approach to “nocturne” as inspiration and challenge, the more than two dozen works shown explore the many nuances of little to no light, in both reality and suggestion.
