Have you ever wondered how the Impressionists saw such beauty? Summerville Artist Guild invites you to join renown artist Timothy Chambers for his exciting, inspiring, mind-blowing True Colors painting workshop at beautiful Azalea Park in Summerville, SC on Friday, October 19 and/or Saturday, October 20, 2018.

Both beginners and experienced pros will enjoy and benefit from the workshop. Tim promises a great time. 🙂

Tim will show you how to see, mix, and paint the true colors of nature. Tim takes his students from average color (the kind everyone sees) to amazing! color as he shares insights from years of painting the outdoors. Tim is an original student of American Impressionist Henry Hensche, having spent summers at the Cape School of Art in Provincetown. 

Once Tim unveils the color that’s there for you to see, you’ll never see the world as anything short of miraculous, amazing, inspiring again!

Workshop description: Tim has helped open the eyes of hundreds of students to see the beauty of natural color. In this fun workshop, Tim offers group and one-on-one guidance to help you learn to see and paint true color as well as share insights on design, knowing when a painting is complete, tricks for more accurate draftsmanship and values. You’ll learn how Tim recognizes the amazing color nuances in nature, how to mix paints to achieve those colors, how to capture the essence of hot sunlight, subtle shadows, overcast skies. You’ll also learn tips on composition, visualization, using contrast, edges, texture, and color to achieve a three-dimensional quality to your work. Join us for a memorable workshop. You’ll enjoy Tim’s kind, engaging, encouraging, effective instruction.
