Washington area landscape artist, Regina Miele was kind enough to come visit us on Tuesday, March 27th.
Regina discussed her art and what moves her to paint as well as her artistic career. On her site, she explains her focus on the importance of light, not being just a value tool. She’s, “attracted to times of day that express change…”
Her portraits, she adds, “attempt to capture someone expressing their humanity.”
Regina also spent time working with our students with in depth critiques and demos to help them learn more about color and more effective ways of color mixing that would enhance their creative process.
Regina’s portraits are all about mood and drawing out the character of the person or the moment.
She was able to show our students tips and techniques with checking the painterly drawings, and being more efficient with placement and proportion.
The student’s loved having the opportunity to have a professional see their work and advise them on their create endeavors.
It’s was a great couple of hours and a win, win, for everyone!
