William Cochran to teach Trompe L'Oeil Mastery Program at Golden Artist Colors in September 2013

Veteran trompe l’oeil muralist William Cochran believes trompe l’oeil is an extreme extension of painting’s core principles and an excellent discipline to improve any painter’s control and range, regardless of subject or media. 
From September, 19-22 2013, his 4-day TLMP: CORE Workshop will give you the keys to painted illusions that truly fool the eye. The methods are straightforward and no-nonsense, although self-motivation is required to master them. The workshop is about revolutionizing the way we see, and about new ways to think about color, value and paint.  
Whether you are a new painter, have an advanced degree in painting or are a multi-decade veteran muralist, the instructor will meet you at your level of expertise. This workshop will give you techniques to elevate your skills to new levels.  
A companion workshop, TLMP: COLOR/STILL LIFE, runs September 23-26, 2013 and will focus on Values, Color and Texture.  
This workshop builds on the principles taught in the CORE Workshop by maintaining a strong focus on learning to see and on values as the primary key to the illusion of dimension.  
In the COLOR/STILL LIFE workshop, the focus deepens in the areas of:  
Color Temperature and Harmony (cools/warms) 
Color Theory and Color Mixing 
The Intrinsic Magic of Pigment 
Edges and Brushwork  
As in all of William Cochran's classes, TLMP: COLOR/STILL LIFE includes illustrated lectures and demonstrations. Most of the time is spent becoming accustomed to seeing differently and especially, to painting, with considerable personal attention tailored to your level of experience from this highly rated instructor. Each participant will receive an illustrated binder of information with a class outline, key principles, paint charts and technical information.
