Figure Painting in Oil with Michael Carson
This workshop is open to all levels of artist who would like to learn a unique approach to figurative painting under the guidance of Michael Carson. During this workshop Mike will demonstrate his process and approach to painting with painting demonstrations each morning. The afternoons will be devoted to painting live models in open studio.
Mike Carson is a Minnesotan oil painter and sculptor, whose artwork can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the world. His aim is to use technique, mechanics, colour and design to bring a fresh approach to the subject of the figure. "My work is first and foremost figurative studies. It's what I like to paint, my biggest challenge and my greatest payoff. My nondescript surroundings help me create a mood or a story that I am trying to relay through my painting. Inspiration comes from architectural interiors as well as fashion and my work allow me to explore this side of myself as well. I view a painting as a success when I take from it something new that follows me into my next work. It's just about learning to become a better painter."
