A close relationship between visual memory and drawing/painting evolves over an artist’s lifetime. Consciously training the memory to retain imagery aides the artist in painting ﬂeeting effects, capturing the essential, and breathing life into their work. This workshop cultivates visual memory of shape, proportion, value and color relationships through techniques practiced in the 19th century French academies and ateliers. We will begin each session by practicing a variety of memory techniques, then use our sharpened inner vision to create paintings from memory. Students may work in oil, acrylic or watercolor.
