About the event

Tylor McNeil, a professional oil painter specializing in classical realism, brings 25 years of painting experience and 8 years of full-time career dedication to his workshops. He aims to share the wealth of knowledge acquired along his path to realism, offering valuable insights for artists at all skill levels, from beginners to professionals, to enrich their own art practices.

The workshop begins with a focus on understanding the palette and color charting before delving into the complexities of oil painting, which Tylor simplifies into three manageable steps.

Step one entails mapping out the painting, also known as an underpainting, with a focus on proportions and color blocking.

Step two involves developing the second layer, emphasizing color and contrast to bring form to life and define the subject visually.

Lastly, step three concentrates on refinement, where attention is given to details such as edges, highlights, and shadows to elevate the painting and make it truly stand out. Tylor emphasizes that realism doesn't have to be as daunting as it seems, and his workshop aims to empower artists to find joy in the painting process without feeling overwhelmed by its complexities.


Tylor will provide most of the materials but asks that people bring their own 12x12 canvases and, if they wish, their own brushes or oil paints, if they feel more comfortable with them.
