Lights, Camera, Paintbrush, Action

quiller.jpgThe F+W fine art magazine team has an exciting new project in the works—a series of e-workshops with fabulous artists in a variety of media. The very first shoot took place last week here in Cincinnati, and several of my fellow fine art editors and I got to be there to watch oil and pastel artist, M. Katherine Hurley, a recent cover artist for The Artist’s Magazine, and watercolor genius Stephen Quiller demonstrate their extraordinary skills. (See Stephen in action in the photo at left. Also pictured is Karyn Meyer, lead administrator for WetCanvas! and coordinator of the ArtistsNetworkTV project.)

The filming took place in Hurley’s beautiful seventh-floor studio (huff, puff) in Cincinnati’s Pendleton Art Center, where both artists created material for two 30- to 45-minute videos. Whether or not you paint in oil or watercolor, pastel or acrylic, there is so much to learn from different artists about composition and color, value and shape, and other vital art fundamentals. Both artists were a pleasure to meet and fun to watch. I can’t wait to see the finished videos, which will hopefully be on the market later this spring! Stay tuned for further details.
