I love seeing a number of examples of an artist’s work all together on one wall. And that’s just what Watermill painting tutor Maggie Renner Hellman has provided for us in a recent Facebook post. Above are some paintings she delivered to the Many Hands Gallery in Capitola, California. Colourful aren’t they?
Small wonder Maggie has called her week-long course at the Watermill a ‘Courageous Colo(u)r Workshop’. You’ll be able to capture all the glorious colours of Tuscany in her workshop here in June. And the choice of medium you use is up to you! Maggie is a proficient and an inspiring teacher in oils, acrylics, pastels and/or watercolour and ink travel sketches. There are links to more details of her course below. But yoiu’ll have to hurry, we only have one or two places left. Here’s another colourful Maggie creation
Maggie Renner Hellmann is a contemporary California painter who paints with love, passion and energy. Her work is characterized by a unique blend of loose, energetic brushwork and strong compositions of exuberant color. She says: “I love the joy of color and the poetry of brushwork.”
Maggie is also a knowledgeable and enthusiastic tutor. She’s been teaching for more than 15 years – and she loves it! Her years of experience in painting in many mediums have distilled her teaching to the core fundamentals that will help guide any painter toward success. She will encourage the beginner and challenge the more advanced.
Here’s some praise from some of her former students: “What I liked best about the workshop was Maggie’s approachable manner and encouragement, her clear understanding about color and light, her experience in simplifying landscapes and the discipline of first studying the subject in values – and how to make poetry out of a simple landscape.”
“What I particularly like about your teaching is that you seem to be able to distil the learning into meaningful chunks that are understandable and then you demonstrate the concept and have us practice it. Your methodology is very effective. I really like getting your feedback. You give it in a very helpful and constructive way and always let us observe you painting.”
