Learn how to create more depth and excitement in your painting by focussing on color and value. Elizabeth Congdon will show you how to analyze what you are painting in the simple terms of values that speak the eye's language of volume and space, and then demonstrate how different pigments react with each other to mute or embolden vibrancy, and how transparent glazes can instantaneously create both dramatic and nuanced effects that push objects forward and back into space. Whether you work from observation, imagination, or photo reference, as you practice working in this direct method, from the general to the specific, you will find a powerful foundation for your painting, for making more convincing and compelling images.

ELIZABETH CONGDON is a painterly realist who earned her BA in Art at the University of California at Santa Cruz, and studied classical realism in Florence at Studio Cecil-Graves. She is a longtime AAN artist member, known for her floral still lifes and landscapes oil paintings. In Rhode Island, Congdon co-founded the Jamestown Arts Center and produced a documentary film on a site-specific Nutcracker Ballet.  Recently, Congdon graduated from Laguna College of Art and Design’s MFA Program with honors and was awarded the teaching fellowship.  Congdon is represented by Robert Foster Fine Art Gallery, and currently serves as AAN’s Director of Adult Programming.
