New Fall and Winter Oil and Watercolor Classes in Cumming!

Check out my new art classes for Adults! I'm so honored and happy to be offering lots and lots of classes at the Parks and Rec Department (Cumming, Georgia) this fall and winter. I've had an absolute blast painting with my fellow Forsyth County residents this past spring and summer. We generally finish most of a painting in a two hour class (in watercolor we finish 3 or 4 smaller demos). MOST of all, we enjoy exploring the media of Oils and Watercolor. You can email me at (take out the extra space) kennedyartstudio@ bellsouth.net or call Forsyth Parks and Rec at 770 781-2215 to get on my waiting list or to sign up. See you there!

Painting of South Carolina Beach, Edisto on my Mind!

Oh, Edisto! Love it. This is the final painting for which last month's study was a warm-up. It makes me so want to be back there! Hope you can hear the gentle waves like I can when you look at this one. It's an auction on ebay right now, you can click on the title to see the item if you wish, or click here.

Paintings on Sale - Summer Themes in Oil

You can see some of the demos I've done in class here in the next couple of days. I'm trying to dig through the piles of paintings, I'm going to have to use them to prop open doors or something.

I had been working on this in class, it was more of an "alla prima" type seascape, quickly done, with more loose and impulsive brushwork. You might think it's not, but when you see the more detailed and layered Edisto scene which is basically the same (just a different treatment), you'll notice the difference. I'm experimenting more and more with alla prima, it's where I want to be, and it certainly is more satisfying for students. You can get the beautiful blending of colors, and avoid the problem of picking up the colors of wet under layers by NOT HAVING THEM, ha! It feels strange and wrong to start with a white canvas and paint each section jigsaw-puzzle style, but the payoff is worth it.

Thanks for looking, and if you want to see this painting on ebay, click here.
