Dunedin Fine Art Center Hosting “Color Intensive” Painting Demonstration with Elio Camacho February 15 - Workshop Follows in March
I have known Elio Camacho, a San Francisco painter about seven years, meeting him when I started as the Director of the Beach Art Center in Indian Rocks Beach. He made the trip to the Beach Art Center to conduct a still life painting workshop each year for four years. Well known as an artist and instructor in the western United States, Elio continues to establish himself in Florida as a painting instructor, conducting annual workshops in Tequesta (Lighthouse Art Center School of Art) and Amelia Island (Island Art Association), and new workshops in Key West (Ocean Reef Art League), Ft. Myers (Lee County Alliance for the Arts), and Dunedin (Dunedin Fine Art Center).
I have great regard for his “color intensive” painting technique for which he uses an Alla Prima method to capture light and color, and to mix color on the canvas and the palette. He demonstrates how color, value and transparency control composition, depth and focal points in a painting. An amiable and sharing artist with a very positive attitude toward his students, Elio gives them each personal attention to help them raise the bar on their own work.
Elio is offering a painting demonstration of his color mixing technique on February 15, 2017 at the Dunedin Fine Art Center from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The demo is free for DFAC members and $5 for non-members, and precedes his March 15 – 17 Color Intensive Workshop at the Center. Whether your skill level is beginner or professional, you will find something to learn from his demo, and much more from his workshop. Please make a reservation by calling DFAC at 727-298-3322.
