In this 2-day workshop, this accomplished oil painter and experienced instructor will show you the steps to success for painting a dynamic landscape in oil!  As we know, there is a LOT that goes into a great painting. How exactly is that done? What are the steps? Where do you start? For Kyle in his studio, it starts with selecting some photos and putting an idea together from those photos.

 This is where this workshop will start – Kyle will help you learn what photos will make a good composition, how to create a good idea from several photos, and along the way teach you some tips and tricks for good (“healthy”) photography and how to make your camera work for your art.

 You’ll learn how to take that idea and make it into a painting. You’ll get instruction on composition, blocking in, developing the palette and adding color, building up values, “pushing and pulling” objects to create a focal point.

 How do you get to where you want to go in your landscape paintings? Come to this workshop and learn how!

 Kyle Paliotto has been recognized by Southwest Art Magazine as an “Artist to Watch”. This means that among all the artists out there, Kyle has been singled out and recognized for having awesome talent! Which is why he is in galleries across the U.S., and his work is being snapped up from coast to coast! It also means that we are so privileged to have Kyle in Cole Gallery, and SUPER lucky to have him come and share his wealth of information with you, our wonderful students!

 Kyle is also a very experienced instructor, having taught weekly classes to students in his home studio in Coeur d’Alene Idaho for most of the last decade!  That’s a LOT of teaching experience. For you, this means that Kyle is good at communicating, demoing, teaching his stated vision, and he is also good at “reading” his students and tailoring his instruction to what students need and want to learn.

 In short, this is a terrific instructor – don’t miss this opportunity!
