Joyce Martin – Fixing an Oil Painting
Join us for Joyce Martin’s April 13 Artist Demonstration!
Joyce will discuss and demonstrate the assessment of a painting, determining what the “problem” may be and what changes are desired, redrawing with charcoal on a dry/old work, using a transparent overlay to note possible changes, and direct repainting, glazing, and scumbling techniques.
Fixing An Old Painting
- Critique of an artwork
- Staying with the original inspiration
- Using a skill rubric to find problems
- Experimenting with solutions
- Repainting over old work
- “Contaminated” canvas
- When to stop and use the information for the next project
Joyce’s love of art and creative endeavors has existed since childhood and her room was always filled with ongoing projects. That enthusiasm has stayed with her and has translated to further development of her owl paintings and teaching adult classes in basic oil painting at her home studio and gallery.
She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and Art and a Master’s in Fine Arts. For 33 years, she taught Kindergarten through 8th grade, including art, drama, ceramics, woodworking, music, and teacher training. A major project during that time was creating and supervising the first after-school arts program for students in the Menlo Park, CA, area.
In recent years she has been studying with master painters. Locally, she has studied for many years with Anita Wolff to develop an impressionist style further. Additionally, she has participated in workshops for figurative painting with Melinda Morrison and Carolyn Anderson, plein air painting with Kathleen Elsey, Kathleen Dunphy, Randy Sexton, and Charles Muench, still life studies with Quiang Huang, and landscape painting with Mike Bagdonas, Johannes Vloothius, Colley Whisson, Matt Smith, and Derek Penix.
Her original oil paintings feature birds, flowers, classic autos, landscapes, still life, figurative subjects, and sports. Joyce’s work has been displayed and available for sale at Ironstone Winery, El Dorado County Art Studio Tour, Art in the Orchard, El Dorado County Arts Council Gallery, Intel, Arts Association membership shows, and local public venues. She has received juried awards and People’s Choice at local shows. In 2018 she was the judge for the Folsom Arts Association Member show.
Currently, her work is on display at Flowers On Main in Placerville. Contact Joyce to view her work AT her home studio and Upstairs Gallery.
