Field to Studio Acrylic/Oil Workshop with David Boyd, Jr.

August 13, 2021

Get an inside look at the process of award-winning Southern Impressionist David Boyd, Jr. during this special two-day online workshop. Participants will follow David, live, throughout his daily practice, starting with his search for subject matter in the streets of Newnan, Georgia—where he will make field sketches, color notes, and value studies—and landing in the studio, where David will walk through the steps of scale to composition. Then, David will paint a black and white painting before bringing it to full-color finish, taking the participant through every step of his proven process.

Designed for intermediate students in oil or acrylic, this course will incorporate several introductory videos, and students will select their subject matter and site before the workshop begins. After the demonstrations, students will paint their own works using the skills taught in the workshop, with full access via Zoom to David for questions and progress check ins. Finally, students will submit their work via email for group critique.

On the second day, David will perform another live demo based on questions gleaned from the previous day’s work, and artists will paint some more with David’s assistance and a critique time at the end.

8 am–4 pm each day, with a break for lunch. $200. There is also an $80 view-only option in which students can gain access to all live demos, but cannot participate in paint along interaction or critiques. artguildlouisiana.org.
