Deborah Bigeleisen Demonstrating for one of her Group Classes

 

 

Deborah Bigeleisen shares her excitement with The Rickie Report, ” I’m giving 1-on-1 painting lessons via Zoom from my studio to yours!  My approach is ideal for beginners and established artists as well.  We’ll paint together on a subject that inspires and excites you ~ if you are a serious artist or just want to have some fun being creative!  For those who are new to Zoom, I will coach you through the process, which is not intimidating.   Zoom allows you to “share”/see my monitor so that we can address specific points.

 

 

 

Here’s how the classes work:

 

 

FIRST:  We talk by phone, get acquainted,  and talk about your goals. Then we arrange a lesson time.

We’ll also talk about materials, what you have, or if you are starting from scratch.

You can use either acrylic or oil paints.

SECOND:  You will text me or email me a jpg of the image that you want to paint along with a few words as to why you like it.  If you want to work on a painting in progress, and you are stuck, tell me why.

THIRD: When the lesson goes live:

I’ll be prepared in my studio to demonstrate any number of things from how to start a painting from a blank canvas, to showing you how to effectively use different size and shaped brushes, and how to achieve many different effects whether you are working in acrylics or oils.

I also use Photoshop as a teaching tool, and will have your work already uploaded to work on.

 

Cost:

Initial complimentary 1/2hr. session to get acquainted and for you to get a feeling for how the class works.

1/2 hr session: $30 

1 hour session: $50

Classes must be booked and paid for at least 24 hrs in advance

Payment:

A SOLO EXHIBITION :

SUSAN  OAKES

OPENING  RECEPTION

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

 5 -8  PM

Exhibition runs September 11 – 29, 2017

 

 

 

 “9/11 Steel” (Above) is a new piece, being unveiled for the first time at this Exhibition  About the 9/11 memorial in NYC, it is a collage of an illustration of a veteran who has lost a limb in war and a piece of steel from the twin towers which is displayed in the 9/11 Memorial Museum in NYC.

 

Susan tells The Rickie Report,  “In my recent collage pieces, I create composites of several photos, and sometimes vector illustrations as well. They are not only layered, but have various other effects such as painting, blending and masking to achieve a certain look. I often begin with the human form and then relate it to elements in the natural world, such as water, plant life, or landscapes. The viewer’s eye is drawn around the piece to discover both the individual elements and how they coalesce to form the whole.”

 

 

 

“Chasms” by Susan Oakes

 

 

“I am a freelance digital artist/instructor with a diverse background in psychology, business, art and technology.  Having never been a person with merely one goal, one purpose, I’ve traveled a multi-faceted personal and vocational road of discovery. Through my work and teaching, I demonstrate that art and technology are not antagonistic, but can coexist and should be used to enhance each other in new and exciting ways. In my digital work I blur the borders between photography, painting, and digital illustrate on to achieve my artistic vision”.

 

“Rapture” by Susan Oakes

 

 

Susan explains, “What I do is not really traditional photography, but “Photo Imaging” in which I use enhanced techniques such as layering, masking, and digital “hand painting”.  Although it originates with computer hardware and software, my work is not the result of anything “automatic”, and is developed from my original photography. There is no “formula” or automatic process; no two pieces are done in exactly the same way”.

 

“Duplicity” by Susan Oakes

 

 

Susan’s artwork has been seen in juried art exhibits throughout the State of Florida as well as in New York and Maryland. She has been a Featured Artist at numerous galleries in Southeast Florida, along with other SOLO exhibitions. Susan has been recognized with multiple awards for her innovative artistry, in addition to exhibits on-line (Art Ascent Magazine, June, 2013 and Light Space and Time www.lightspacetime.com)

February 8th

6:30 pm

Free and Open to The Public

Wellington Community Center

12150 Forest Hill Boulevard Wellington, FL

 

Toni WIlley tells The Rickie Report, “If method defines an artist, I would say mine is: I must focus almost down to the pixels when I study a subject to paint”.  Toni’s presentation at the Wellington Art Society meeting will include sharing numerous easy-to-use Apps to bring varying elements of real and imagined images together. Here are some of the other Heroic Golden Women that Toni has painted from such graphics. She uses Gold Leaf around the edges of the canvas frames.

 

 

“Psych” by Toni Willey

 

 

 

The public as well as members of WAS are in for a treat! The Rickie Report will not reveal her methods, but Toni will!  You will see how she brings large scale commissioned paintings into reality.  “I’m going to show you how I approach these projects and give you the tools to do this yourself, using some photo editing Apps that are available at a low cost”, she shares.

 

“American Sweetheart” by Toni Willey

 

 

 

 

Toni will be demonstrating all the new Photo Editing Apps available in addition to the big programs known as Photoshop. “The Apps which work on tablets and iPhones cost pennies in comparison to Adobe Photoshop, which is out of reach for most artists. These Apps put powerful editing tools in the artist’s hands for composing their works before putting brushes to canvas.  Photographers from amateurs to professionals will benefit for learning about these Apps”, Toni tells us.

 

“Pandora” by Toni Willey

 

 

 

Toni uses original images, incorporating other images, overlaying them, zooming in on one part of a different image and manipulating them with these Apps.  The finished art piece is on canvas, with texturing, sculpting and painting for the final effect.  None of these Apps were priced higher than $3.99.

 

“Beauty” by Toni Willey

 

 

Toni is an enthusiastic member of the Wellington Art Society, serving on the Board of Directors as Recording Secretary and participating in all events and demonstrations including Art Fest on the Green.  Also known as T.G. Willey, Toni is well known for her exceptional paintings of endangered species and her series “ Ancient and Mystical Women”. She recently had a solo exhibition at Whole Foods Market Wellington. Her prints sell internationally on  tgwilleyart.com  and www.fineartamerica.com.

 

 

“Gypsy Dancer” by Toni Willey

 

 

 

Toni began drawing at an early age but her exceptional talent surfaced when she began painting. Her teachers said she painted the way Mozart played music, it just rolled off her fingers. She attended Art Institute and Foundation classes at Washington University and St. Louis University, where she studied all the fine art disciplines. Her paintings are photo realistic and semi-abstract, painted in acrylics and mixed media.

 

 

 

 

 

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization in its 36th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.

Cyanotype by Louise Noakes

 

 

About the workshop:

 

The cyanotype process, also known as the blueprint process, was one of the early methods used to make photographic images. It was invented in 1842 by astronomer John Herschel.  It’s a great process for the beginners that want to learn about an easy and rewarding alternative process. We will start by learning how to make a photograms onto sensitized paper in the sun. This will teach you the basic process, mixing the chemicals, coating your paper, exposures, developing your print. We will then learn how to make a negative from one of your photographs. The second day we will make a 24”x30” print onto handmade paper. Students will be amazed at the work they create in this workshop.

Joanne Urban

Saturdays November 5 & 12, 2016
Wed & Thurs Feb 20 & 21, 2017
11am-4pm

$140.

 

 

About the workshop:

Using the scanner as a camera, we will scan 3D objects such as flowers, shells, fruits, vegetables, toys, and any number of found objects. The flat bed scanner technique is a challenge as it is your studio, your camera, your light source, all in one. The scanner can generate extremely high resolution images capturing incredible detail.

 

 

louisenoakesyellow-tulip

“Yellow Tulip” by Joanne Urban

You will learn the unique qualities of making photographic still life images utilizing the flat-bed scanner. You will learn how to use the scanner software, arrange your elements, proper exposure and proper file sizing. Using the same enhancements you would use with images from your digital cameras, the scanned image will be imported into Photoshop (all skill levels welcome) for final editing and output.

During the last twenty five years Munro has shot underwater images in natural bodies of water; using uncontrolled situations and everyday people instead of professional models. This production reveals the artist as a ‘Documentarist’: an observer of mind / body relationships to circumstance. He chronicles the nuances of human comprehension and situation, exposing sensuality in a delicate balance.
