Class Description

HERE ARE THE WORKSHOPS YOU HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR:

  • Each One Day, Three Hour Workshop is dedicated to focusing on essential art elements and painting techniques to create dynamic paintings, emphasizing self expression with confident brushstrokes and color.

  • Focusing on strong mono-chromatic, one color value under paintings.

  • Create strong compositions with earthy textures, dramatic skies, and transparent moving water.

  • Exercises with line, shape, value, form, texture, color, space, linear and atmospheric perspective.

  • Learn to paint like you draw with movement, rhythm, variety, and harmony.

  • Build confidence with bold expression. 

  • A class packed with information in a relaxed environment so you are inspired to continue painting on your own. All levels.

 

Loretta Domaszewski is an award winning professional contemporary artist exhibiting and teaching all ages and levels, locally and nationally for three decades. Her passion is to be active, explore nature, create art, and encourage self-discovery through artistic expression.

As a contemporary artist Loretta creates visual poetry and the beauty of the land. The spirit of place is inspiration for deeper, psychological interpretations of the journey, the personal quest.

 

Loretta is energized by the changing elements in nature; movement of flowing water patterns, cloud formations, and the play of light. Her paintings draw you in, as to explore the intimacy of the illuminated pathway or of nature’s expansive earth, sky, and water.

 

Intimate nature trails, western mountain hikes, east coast beaches and the exploration of water ways rejuvenate and inspire her to paint abstracted elements of nature. She is pleased when a viewer sees her landscape paintings and sense that they have been there before, evoking their own personal memories.

 

Painting en plein air, alla prima, or in the studio, she concentrates on the act of painting; meditating, visualizing, creating expressive fluid gestures with bold saturated color and rich texture made from natural earth and mineral pigments. She lays down a thick expressive palette knife relief, adds layers of color transparencies with subtle blending transitions, and bold sweeping brush strokes. Rags and combs wipe and scrape the painted surface, revealing vibrantly painted under tones. 

 

Through the expression of art Loretta encourages the viewer to experience the power, spirit, and beauty of nature. 

Loretta has lived and raised her family in Bozeman, Montana with her husband and architect, Jack Ranieri since 1990. You can see more paintings locally in Bozeman, at Cello Gallery or her studio at the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture.
