I Will be continuing my Plein Aire Course and Still Live Courses
For the Upcoming Summer Semester
At the South Shore Art Center
PLEIN AIRE PAINTING.... We will be working indoors with setups that represent shadow and light, perspective and values from tabletop models. We will then proceed to work from photographshs, and learn the proper use of the photograph and its limitations. Perspective, drawing chckpoints and color will be the concentration of the course, all designed to when we do go outside, we have that much more of a visual coordination between our painting and the location.. A great foundation or refresher.
STILL LIFE PAINTING.... We sill start with simple shapes within a light box, initially painting in monochrome, to learn proper drawing checkpoints with value and modeling/shading. As we progress we will work increasingly on more complicated set ups where we may introduce numerous intricate colors ubjects, modeling, drawing, color, and value will be explored. A great learning experience, painting maybe everyday objects (or florals) into a fine piece of art.
Full course descriptions, dates, tuition and registration are available through the South Shore Art Centers Learning Center

Weekly Clothed Figure Workshop
Also I will be continuing to host weekly PORTRAIT/FIRGURE WORKSHOP with the Scituate Ate Association. Held every Wednesday afternoon, from 3 to 5 PM at the Eliis Estate, at 709 Country SWay, in Scituate. This is an informal group to paint or draw from a model that will lhold the same pose for the three hour session. The figure will clothed and set in an outdoor location within the lawn and gardens of the facility. It's a great way to combine plein Aire/Alla Prima with the figure. Cost is $10 for members of the Scituate Arts Association, $15, non members. Contact me to either join, or be included on our weekly e-mail annoucement at Bob@beaulieudesign.com . See you there!
Come Paint With Me
The first was instruction and explanation of the Second Wednesday Portrait Workshop that I host. An interesting view, not only was my work recorded, but Vcevy Stakovlovsky and Scott Ketchum were also featured. It makes for an interesting watch to see how three artist approach their work and create their own separate interpretation working form the same source, the model. You can view it at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWVlpFunfHk
The second video I am producing a still life form the Ellis studio location. I instruct on a step by step procedure to arrive at my concluded piece. to include a mistake and cover up about half way through. the composition had a flaw in it, and the video shows how I easily corrected it! this can be viewed at: https://www.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9u3VL3DdzA&t=141s
