“Blue Like Jazz” by Lois Perdue

 

 

 

 

Learn how to create your own bold, vibrant abstracts in Lois Perdue’s Bigger (a little bit), Faster, Looser Abstract Painting Workshop.

 

 

 

 

“Easy Like Sunday Morning” by Lois Perdue

 

“As a teaching tool, students will be provided with an array of carefully selected mini magazine clips based on color and composition,” said Lois. “This guides them to begin to create some of their own beautiful unique abstract designs.” 

 

 

 

 

The technique Lois uses to achieve beautiful abstract designs is the same one she uses in her popular mini abstract workshops!

Many of her students have asked to paint a bit larger and a little bit looser in her workshops.

 

 

“Ocean Fetish” by Lois Perdue

Lois tells the Rickie Report:

 

“I am bumping up the canvas size this time so students will be working on 11 x 14 formats rather than the usual mini 5 x 7 sizes,” she said.  “I’ll continue to use the same techniques that have worked so successfully for me for a number of years-using the mini 5 x 7 magazine clips for inspiration as it allows me to better visualize the design. Starting with this mini technique is not intimidating even for new abstract artists and allows them a place to start so they are not just staring at a blank canvas”, said Lois. “ Some of my returning students will build upon their techniques and experiment with paints, inks and collage (or bring old failed paintings) to create some of their own organic abstract artwork in this new looser, bigger workshop.” 

In the workshop Lois will begin on the 11 x 14 canvas with the first layers of watercolor paints, acrylics/inks, stencils and mark making to create a foundation. Then she said it would be “sealed “and many more layers would be applied to create depth. 

 A supply list will be provided upon registering. 

(Although Lois paints on watercolor paper, canvas and wood panel, she prefers the magic of a plastic paper called Yupo. It has a slick surface unlike the more absorbent watercolorcolor paper; when Yupo meets water media the colors virtually explode. She begins all her first layers with watercolor paints/inks, powdered watercolor pigments, glazes and markings to establish a ‘busy” foundation and then proceeds to acrylic paints/inks charcoal, pen for marking and collage.  She holds the first layers with polymer medium or varnish so the paint doesn’t “move”! and then begins to apply subsequent layers. Many of Lois’ finished paintings on Yupo have between 10 to 15 layers, each layer has been “set” with varnish to hold the colors. To see some of her work please visit her website at:  www.loisperdue.com)

Lois realized how much of an impact using the “small formats” technique made in her own artwork practice. Soon she began receiving awards and recognition in national, state and local competitions with her larger format works. 

In addition to the recognition, she got another bonus: Students wanted to learn how to paint abstract design techniques-from her!   She was asked to teach —something she loves to do—and for the past several years has been teaching these concepts to local students at ArtServe in Fort Lauderdale and elsewhere at venues throughout the local area upon request!

Classes are filled with returning students who just want to “change up” their art style and artists who just want to bring some “zing” to their style through abstract art techniques. 

 

About Lois

After working in other creative fields, I discovered a passion for Abstract painting. Although I had briefly studied oil painting, sculpting and weaving, entering that first abstract class was just the beginning of an amazing journey for me. Here I could use my energy, spontaneity and vision.  I could paint where nothing is ever “wrong” and there are no “rules”. I use fantasies, feelings and my imagination combined with colors, shapes, materials, concepts and designs to create my own way of expressing myself through Abstract Art.

Lois, who has lived in South Florida her entire life, has been recognized in National, State and Local juried art competitions. Her vibrant, abstract expressionist paintings have won many awards. Lois regularly takes workshop classes with Nationally recognized artists who provide their expertise and enthusiasm for her to continue her passion for painting!

Lois is an active member of a number of business and art-related Local, State and National art organizations including the International Society of Experimental Artists, Florida Watercolor Society, Gold Coast Watercolor Society, Weston, Plantation, Broward Art Guilds. Davie-Cooper City Chamber of Commerce, Women’s Executive Club and National League of American Pen Women, Fort Lauderdale Branch where she serves as first vice president and program chair.

Highland Beach Library Features Patricia Lappin’s Florida Paintings During “Black And White And Colorful” Exhibit. Meet The Artists January 16 And View The Exhibition Through March 2

Patricia Lappin will be showing her Florida Paintings at the Highland Beach Library during its “Black and White and Colorful” Exhibit.  The public is welcome to view this FREE exhibit and meet all of the artists, including Patricia Lappin, Michael D’Amato, and Judi Aronson at the Reception on January 16.  This exhibit runs through March 2, 2020. Lappin’s focus for her paintings since moving to Florida in 2016 has been the wetlands and beaches.  While Loxahatchee Reserve, Green Cay, the Morikami Japanese Gardens, and Gumbo Limbo Nature Center are the inspiration, she is taking more license with the colors and simplifying the shapes to imply and intuit instead of recording the scene.  Her subject is still the natural world expressed with color and abstracted elements. Lappin teaches Dynamic Color Harmony classes in Jupiter at the New Studio for Visual Arts.  The Rickie Report shares some sneak peeks of Lappin’s newest works and the details about this exhibit.

Acrylic Diptych by Patricia Lappin

 

 

Patricia Lappin tells The Rickie Report, I want the viewers to Enjoy the Beauty That Surrounds You.  My paintings are full of joyful color and rich textures.  Hope you enjoy them all”!  Lappin moves easily from plein air to what we call “serene abstract”.  Her focus for her paintings since moving to Florida in 2016 has been the wetlands and beaches.  While Loxahatchee Reserve, Green Cay, the Morikami Japanese Gardens, and Gumbo Limbo Nature Center are the inspiration, she is taking more license with the colors and simplifying the shapes to imply and intuit instead of recording the scene.  Her subject is still the natural world expressed with color and abstracted elements. 

 

 

To Patricia, every painting is an adventure!  When you visit the Highland Beach Library to see her exhibit, you will understand what she means.  She says, ” Since moving to Florida my color palette has become brighter and more vibrant. My subject is still the natural world expressed in both abstracts and more recognizable images.  However, I am taking more license with the colors and simplifying the shapes to imply and intuit instead of record an actual scene as I have been doing for the last 20 years”.

 

 

 

 

“Deep Blue Reflection” by Patricia Lappin

 

 

 

Patricia goes on to explain, “Before Florida I lived in Arkansas for 20 years, exploring the hills and waterways with Plein Air and studio work in oil. That is the THEN. NOW I am sketching and taking photos at Green Cay and the Loxahatchee Nature Preserve to inspire the new acrylic paintings.  The contrast is very interesting when placed side by side.  Our life circumstances and a new environment have great influence on how we see the world around us”.

 

Patricia tells The Rickie Report, ” Enjoy the beauty around you.  My desire to create was very strong and drawing was my refuge, my sanctuary.  It was an inner compulsion to be separate from the world sometimes.  I was content to spent hours drawing leaves, branches and bugs. A school field trip to the St. Louis Art Museum opened my eyes – adults took painting and drawing seriously, what a revelation”!

 

 

Acrylic Study by Patrica Lappin

 

 

From age 10 to 14, she studied painting on Saturday mornings with a high school art teacher.  After high school, she attended SMS in Springfield, Mo. for 4 semesters, taking every available art course, intro to design, color, etc., but Patricia only wanted to learn to paint like the paintings she had seen at the St. Louis Art Museum and that was not happening.  She met her husband, married and became a mother. 

 

Patricia continues, “I was still painting, but unsure of the new “adult artist” me.  We moved to Fairfield, CT. near NYC.  Caesar Cirigliano became my teacher and mentor for 5 years.  Working with only black, white, yellow ocher and burnt sienna for the first 3 years, he taught me portrait, landscape and still life painting.  We spent many hours at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC studying the masters. Working with Ceasar was the greatest education I could have.  From 1970 to 1975 he led me from an insecure young adult struggling to believe in my artist-future to a confident artist in multiple mediums.  As he was leaving for Florida to retire, I ask him “who would be my teacher now?”  His answer formed my future.  “Don’t you know?  You are the teacher now.  You have the foundation now.”  When I began teaching I used my notes from the 5 years of study with Caesar.  I still use them today”.

 

 

 

 

“Fire In The Sky” by Patricia Lappin

 

 

 

Patricia opened her first studio in 1980 and began teaching and exhibiting in the tri-state area.  Her family moved to Ft. Smith AR in 1996.  “Since then I have been represented by galleries in Kansas City MO, Scottsdale AZ, and Van Buren AR.  I have shown my work at the Ft. Smith Art Center and the Center for Art and Education many times.  I teach private classes and workshops. My paintings are in many private and public collections”.

 

 

In 2016 the Lappins moved to Boca Raton FL, where Patricia joined the Plein Air Palm Beach group, exploring new scenes and making new friends, seeking out galleries and other venues for showing/selling her paintings and teaching.  She is on the faculty at The New Studio for the Visual Arts in Jupiter, FL, where she teaches Dynamic Color. Contact http://thenewstudiova.net  for information. Patricia also teaches a basic acrylic class at Artisans On The Ave in Lake Worth.  She is a member of the Palm Beach Watercolor Society. Patricia has won numerous awards for her artistry and her works can be found in private as well as public collections. 

 

More about Dynamic Color:

Do you want stronger, more confident paintings with less struggle? 

 Do you want paintings that glow? That stand out in a crowd, that make a strong statement?

Then this class is for you!

Using core colors of red, yellow and blue plus white and black will be the starting point– BUT WHICH BLUEWHICH YELLOW-WHICH RED?

In this class we will explore the visual and emotional effects of different color choices. Using simple shapes of pears, hearts, trees, balloons or abstract geometrics will make it easier to concentrate on the color and our response to how it effects the painting.

  • Making a color plan in the beginning of a painting saves a lot of struggle later.  Let’s explore the options.

  • Knowing the “why” of color combinations that work will boost your confidence.

  • Do you like BOLD or SOFT colors? It doesn’t matter which, playing with color is FUN, FUN, FUN.

  • Better than the BIG box of crayons.

If you love color, you will love playing along with me in this class.  While all mediums would be welcome, acrylic will be the medium of choice for my demos and instruction.
