Bill Farnsworth will teach a 3 day oil painting workshop focusing on painting figures in a landscape in a studio environment. Bill will demo every morning to show a step by step process of creating a believable figure in a landscape. He will talk about the gathering of information through studies and photography.
The students will have a better understanding of gesture, shapes and values. His inside out approach of working from 3 values will give them tools to paint everything.
About Bill Farnsworth
As a 1980 graduate of The Ringling School of Art and Design, Bill Farnsworth has spent more than 34 years as an Illustrator and Fine Artist. Born in Norwalk Connecticut in 1958, Bill spent most of his life in New Milford Connecticut painting landscapes of the rural area, while supporting himself and family with his growing illustration career. Farnsworth is a Signature member of The Oil Painters of America, and The American Society of Impressionists. He is also a Fellow in The American Society of Marine Artists. His paintings have appeared in many National shows, Museums, and private collections throughout the United States. A nationally known illustrator, Bill has seamlessly moved into the Fine Art field where he has garnered awards of excellence from the Oil Painters of America's National and Regional shows. He won Best in Show at The 10th Biennial National Show in Punta Gorda, and The Dickinson Signature Member award in The American Society of impressionists national show in 2018 and 2019. Fine Art Views say "Sensitive and full of human emotion, the heartfelt work of Farnsworth takes us to inner depths." "My goal with my work is to paint what I love and convey that honestly so the viewer can feel that as well".
His work is represented by The Hughes Gallery, Dabbert Gallery, Tree's Place, Reinert Fine Art Gallery, Patricia Hutton Galleries, Mary Williams Fine Art, Gallery 330, and Gingerbread Square Gallery.
Bill currently lives in Venice, Fl. with his wife Debbie.
