The Foxy’s Teaching Mission
Being in the field as a teaching-team for many years now, gave us a real good insight on where certain problems occur most when painting faces, clothing, hands, animals, backgrounds or anything else that matters. This stimulated us to find new ways over and over again to improve our teaching system so that anyone can learn how to paint, wether your ambitions are to become a professional artist, or just like to practice a new hobby in a good way, we will get the most out of you.
Painting is nothing new, neither is working with color,
But what is new, is the way we explain things. We reveal all secrets around working with colors, the difference between transparent, opaque and translucent colors, observing shapes, values and textures and what to look for in a painting without killing it it with an army of too many details, in a language that everyone understands. We break down complicated theory into easy to follow practice. Step by step we show you how to build up an area of textures, colors, shapes, transitions and values. We take airbrush out of the “safety zone” from the forever restricting freehand or shielding techniques and teach you that when you know how materials can work together and when to use what, you won’t be restricted at all and can paint as free as a butterfly without frustration.
We learned about pitfalls that many artists suffer from:
Dirty, muddy looking faces or objects, flat faces without any depth, overshooting light areas that then become too dark, sloppy looking clothing or hairs, harsh looking backgrounds and out of harmony looking paintings.
Sounds familiar? We can prevent you from going there, simply because we know exactly what causes it and we can teach you how to stop this. In every course we train you on your weakest spots, so you can develop better skills and grow as an artist while you practise with your new and improved techniques.
Another very important things you learn during our courses is to correct mistakes quickly and not be afraid to make them, in order to always finish a painting. Often we found people are afraid to complete a painting, because they don’t want to “ruin” it. So we figured that if you know how to fix things, you simply don’t have to be afraid of “ruining” it!
Now ask yourself the question:
“Do I know the differences between opaques, transparent and translucent paint?” –
and “Do I know how to correct a color?”
If the answer is ‘no’, then you should seriously consider to learn more about the following training day:
If you are pretty confident about your skills but not sure of how to work with color, then we can offer you the Color palooza day. It’s a color training day where you learn to decipher opaque, transparent and translucent paint and that there are more then 1 way to build up a good painting; by using an underpainting, a pre-mixed color or optically mixing as you paint along.
Then.. How about attending one of our workshops to kickstart you career as an artist or expand your dearest hobby!
