Nancy Tilles

 

 

Local artist Nancy Tilles is known for her oils and portraits, which hang in public and private collections throughout the country. She exhibits her work in nationally recognized art shows across Florida. Nancy recently completed a commissioned portrait of beloved cardiac surgeon, Dr. Malcolm Dorman, which is installed at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, FL. 

 

 

“Adam and Eve” by Nancy Tilles

 

Along with her portrait work, Nancy has created bodies of work representing flowers, underwater scenes, and tropical art in mural-sized triptychs. Nancy’s newest series is called “Figures in the Ficus”. She says, “I am fascinated with Banyan and Ficus trees…. I usually begin these paintings with a unique tree and weave the figures into its structure.” At first glance, the viewer sees a lovely tree, but after a while, the whimsical human figures within the tree are realized, giving these paintings a truly magical quality.

 

 

 

“Sea Folk” by Nancy Tilles

 

 

 

Nancy is presently teaching painting to adults at Easel Art Supply and at the City of Palm Beach Gardens. She is passionate about sharing her love of painting with her students. Nancy is also an active member of the Wellington Art Society, whose members consist of dedicated professional artists, up and coming artists, art lovers and supporters. Learn more about her work at her website: https://www.nancytilles.com/.

The Wellington Art Society is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization in its 40th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their artwork in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community though their art.

Focus on Hands and Feet!

Anita Lovitt

Saturday, October 16,   10:00 AM—3:30 PM

 

 

This is a Virtual Workshop A Zoom link will be sent to you the day before

 

Hands and feet are some of the most expressive parts of the human body, yet many life drawing attendees are stumped by them. Spend a few hours looking closely at these parts and learn strategies to indicate and to draw them with confidence. In the morning session, we’ll study examples from master artists and then look at ways to simplify the forms and gestures of hands. We’ll do the same for feet in the afternoon. My teaching segments will alternate with students’ time drawing from photographs in 2, 5, and 20 minute sessions, much as in a life drawing class. After focusing on hands and feet for an afternoon, you will approach drawing them with more curiosity and enjoyment.

10:00 AM—1:00 PM Hands     1:00 PM— 1:30 PM {break)    1:30 PM— 3:30 PM Feet

Cost: $110 member, $125 non-member

Materials list will be sent out to students upon registration. Basically, it is whatever materials you prefer for figure drawing. You will be drawing some figures, not just hands. I like to use the following: 2 or 3 soft pencils (3B—6B ) pencils or line and wash pencils White or kneaded eraser Smooth white drawing paper in a pad or sketchbook, whatever size you feel you would use for figure drawing. If a sketch book, at least 9” x 12″. You may use newsprint if you prefer

What Ted’s students have told The Rickie Report:

“I just wanted to let you know that you are one of the people I am thankful for. You are a very patient, perspicacious and encouraging teacher and a critic and you have really changed painting for me in the last few months.  Not only have I reached the point where I can be more satisfied with my results, but the whole process has become more enjoyable for me.  Thank you for being such a generous teacher!”   JB

“Ted has taught me invaluable life lessons painting together. His supportive approach and teaching style allows me to learn completely as my authentic self. He provides safety in vulnerability and constructive feedback to hone my skills. Ted has supported me to live and flourish in my art, leading to my acceptance into the art program of my choice.  Learning with Ted has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and our time together goes well beyond our lessons. He’s taught me to believe in myself and to never give up – to love how I feel when I create art and to live up to what make me, me.”  BB

 

 

I have studied Watercolor Painting with Ted several ways –  in a plein air class in Maine , and both online and in person elsewhere. He is a wonderful, thorough, comprehensive teacher, who has taken me to new levels of understanding in color theory, reflection, depth and shadows, paint handling/technique. In addition, he is generous with his vast knowledge, extremely patient and supportive of his student, and has an awesome sense of humor that puts one at ease”. BMO

“Golden Bluff” Travel Series by Caryl Pomales

Perhaps you have photo images that you’re dying to translate into an abstract piece of art or maybe you are inspired by other works of art that you admire, and want to create your own unique piece of art within your own voice—but you’re not sure how.  I love to travel, and I find that painting abstract landscapes is the perfect way to forge a deeper connection with places that I love. Let me teach you how to do it!

 

 

 

 

“Storm” Atmospheric Series by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

Here’s how it works:

• Each morning, you’ll receive a short pre-recorded video with a lesson and demonstration.

 

• Then, each day, I’ll go live in a Zoom session at 12:00 p.m. EST for an hour.

 

○ During this time, I’ll paint and teach you about how to create a striking and bold abstract landscape using a harmonious color scheme, large shapes, and the power of your mind and your paintbrush to create an abstract landscape painting you’ll be proud of.

 

• If you are unable to attend the live session or would like a second look at the session, the replay will be available later that evening.

 

I’d love for you to join the live sessions so I can demonstrate for you personally and address any of your specific questions.

By the end of the three-day encounter, you will “fall” in love with what you have created and you’ll have a piece of art you’ll be proud to call your own!

 

 

 

Supply list:

 

  • Color scheme tips

  • Tips on creating an eye-appealing horizon line and focal point

  • Instruction on making preliminary studies on paper before painting on canvas

  • Daily positive affirmation

  • Daily live sessions via Zoom with easy-to-follow guidance and the ability to ask questions

  • A private Facebook group where you’ll share your questions/comments as well as your artwork and find fellowship with other artistsJoin me for this powerful learning experience!
