We will be working with color and will explore painting techniques, working with still life and simple plein air landscape sketches—each working on finding simple spots of color—using color, value and temperature to develop form and develop a painting’s composition. I will demonstrate freely and explain all aspects in lecture and visuals. This will be a fun, colorful experience for all!
Don Sahli made the decision to become a professional artist at a very early age. Sahli was a prodigy, as a child he began to be recognized. By the time Don was 16, art galleries in Taos, New Mexico and Texas were selling his paintings. Now at 52, Don has been a professional painter earning a living as an artist for over 35 years.
In 1995 Don Sahli opened Sahli School of Art in Evergreen, Colorado where he continues the tradition held by his teacher and in the linage of the Russian masters. “My teacher Sergie Bongart taught, his teacher Peter Kotov was taught by Nicolai Fechin and Fechin a pupal of the fountainhead of all modern Russian painting Ilya Repin. Sahli keeps this tradition alive in giving back to the student as this is a critical aspect of the artistic process... “I am a better painter because I teach. The Russian tradition of color and temperature continues” “Bongarts heavy steps are still heard in my classes and studios”
Presently, Don Sahli’s work is represented by galleries across the country and his work is in private collections nationally and internationally. Sahli is prodigious, has a firm pedigree and is prolific, producing large studio pieces, numerous plein air works — including public and corporate commissions.
