Still Life Painting In Oils Workshop With Qiang Huang

The focus of the workshop will be on practice with live settings, composing dramatic setups by observing light distribution, and using bold and loose strokes to create a powerful and accurate representation on canvas. Students will be given personal attention based on current skill level and goals. The process of creating energetic paintings by manipulating values, colors, edges andbrushwork will be explained by demonstrations, presentations and individual assistance. $450 ($225 deposit to register).

About Qiang Huang
Qiang Huang (pronounced Chong Wong.) was born and raised in Beijing China and now lives in Austin, Texas. His interest in art developed at a young age, strongly influenced by his uncle, Hong-En Huang, a professional painter and art educator. For various reasons, he was unable to attend professional art institutions, studying science and technology instead. He moved to America in 1985, obtained a Ph.D. in physics in 1993, and embarked on a career in optical engineering. Meanwhile, he remained active in local art communities. To further develop his artistic skills, he attended classes and workshops. He studied with well-known artists like David Leffel, Sherrie McGraw, Scott Burdick, and Carolyn Anderson. In the summer of 2012, Qiang attended the graduate school of the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and studied with well-known figurative artist, Zhaoming Wu. Qiang is a guest artist with the Putney Painters, and has painted multiple times with the modern masters of representational art, Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik. Qiang’s paintings are known for their remarkable accuracy and expressive brush strokes. He is a Signature Member of the Oil Painters of America. His paintings were selected for the 14th, 15th, 16th, 18th , 20th, and 22nd OPA National Juried Exhibitions. He won the “Still Life - Honorable Mention” award at the 20th OPA National and the “Still Life - Award of Excellence” at the 22nd OPA National Juried Exhibition. Qiang is represented by the InSight Gallery in Fredericksburg, the Capital Fine Art Gallery in Austin, and the Marta Stafford Fine Art Gallery in Marble Falls, Texas. Qiang is also a self-represented daily painter. He showcases his updated work on his blog, and markets his paintings in online auctions. Qiang uses the internet efficiently and shares his ideas and techniques about his art journey as well as his thoughts and feelings about the world on his blog. Thousands of artists follow his painting blogs and communicate with Qiang regularly. He has been teaching workshops on still life painting and the on-line art business since 2008. Utilizing his training in the technical fields, his teaching is well organized, informative, and easy to follow. Many artists have attended his workshops multiple times, and have seen significant progress in their own art. Qiang’s still life work was featured in Southwest Art magazine in March, 2011. American Artist Magazine featured his art and teaching in the 2009 summer issue of the “Workshop” Magazine. In 2014, his art will be featured again in the Artist Magazine.
