See how Willow works with color in creating Abstract, Fauve (primary color palette) compositions, and Hyper-Realistic Landscapes and Still Life. Willow will demonstrate how she layers colors to create depth and interest. Please bring a canvas, your acrylics or oils, brushes, and portfolio (or current work you would like feedback on). If you have an image/photograph you’d like to work from, you can have it drawn or enlarged and transferred to the canvas beforehand. Email Willow if you have any questions.


WILLOW LA LAND was born in 1973 as a third generation artist. Surrounded by creativity and many different mediums, she learned through observation and serious practice starting at the age of ten. She often uses many layers associated with abstract painting, under her hyper-realistic work. Her “Fauve” series actually came about because people were purchasing her under-paintings “before she even got started.” Willow credits early American painter, John Frederick Peto as her greatest inspiration. Her paintings are about invoking the senses, how mood is effected by color, and about enjoying life.
