“Great Impact Starts with Simple Shapes”

Philippe’s goal in this two day workshop is to help you develop your own painting style and share with you his passion for art.

The workshop will consist of a still life painting on the first day. We will explore the treatment of composition/focal point, values, edges, color and light, as well as the importance of intent and mood.

Weather permitting, we will do plein air painting on the second day, exploring and developing the concepts demonstrated during the first day.

Philippe Gandiol – “Landscapes, still life or the figure, the process is my passion…”

Philippe, an award winning Northern California painter, was born and raised in France and moved to California in his early 20’s. He has painted with oils for over 30 years. He pursued an independent program of study taking classes in France, San Francisco and Sacramento and with several renowned West Coast painters.

Philippe likes to paint a variety of subjects like landscapes, cityscapes, still life and figures “en plein air” or in the studio. He works as much as possible from life, believing that only in life can he find the full range of light and color he wants in his paintings and the spirit and mood of his subject matter.

Philippe is actively involved with the California artist community, art events and fundraisers. He also participated in juried art festivals in Easton, Sonoma, Carmel, Napa and Los Gatos to name a few. He teaches privately out of his studio or in the outdoor and also offers painting workshops. As an instructor, Philippe is appreciated as a thorough, supportive and inspiring mentor.
