with Abstract Painter JANE DAVIES

Edgewater Gallery at the Falls, One Mill Street, Middlebury



Love those bright juicy luminous colors such as azure, magenta, green-gold, and brilliant yellow? Gray and beige not so exciting? If you gravitate to bright colors, believe it or not this workshop is for you. The key to making bright colors really sing is pairing them with interesting neutrals: grays, off-whites, beiges, and browns.

In this one-day workshop students will explore the power of neutrals and learn how to mix and employ an exciting variety of them. Using examples from the gallery, Jane’s own collection, and a slide show, you’ll look at the roles neutrals can play in bold, bright works, as well as softer, quieter pieces.

Students will gain a deeper appreciation of neutrals, and the skills to create their own personal palette.

This workshop is for intermediate level students, those already familiar with basic color mixing skills and basic color vocabulary.

Class size limited to 10 students

Fee: $175 per student

Hours: 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM with a one hour lunch break from 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM

Abstract painter Jane Davies began her art career as a potter but soon transitioned to focus on painting and collage. She teaches extensively, offering in person workshops, virtual classes, DVD instructional videos and demos through social media. Davies has written five instructional books.

Jane Davies writes of her work:

“Formal elements are my first and foremost source of inspiration. I can be moved by a simple combination of color and line, or the relationships of shapes and edges, or the interplay between pattern and scale…. In my own art practice, focus on process is an essential component of developing work that feels authentic and personal. My process involves a back-and-forth play between spontaneous, intuitive mark-making, and careful deliberation and intention: I think of it as letting things happen, and making things happen.”
