Have you ever pondered the various ways of transforming your painting muse into an abstract expression of how or what you feel? Seems a bit complicated, but worth a shot, right? Take a photo of a specific scene that you are fond of, whether it's a Downtown busy street, the ocean, a sweeping meadow, etc. and begin to understand its rhythm. Is it calm? frantic? Does it overlap in size and shape, is it warm or cool? Next, take your picture and crop it, blow it up, imagine it from a birds eye view. Starting to sound interesting? In this 5 week course with a working, professional artist, You will learn and develop a system of painting abstract imagery that will make your work grow leaps and bounds. Yeskel will explain the mesh between mid-century abstraction and realism and how it has evolved in today's art world. Learn to paint abstractly while staying in touch with traditional methods and techniques.

Scott Yeskel is an acclaimed oil painter who paints both representational and abstract cityscapes mostly of L.A. In the tradition of Diebenkorn, Richter and De Kooning. This juxtaposion leaves the work diverse on many levels. Yeskel's abstracts, layered in thick strokes of oil, speak of incorporial places that harken back a mood or feeling from particular environments he has been. The representaional work, on the other hand, leaves an impression of a snap shot gone by.

The work is balanced, both focused yet off kilter, sharp yet skewed. His bold color choices mix with various muted hues to pull together truly contemporary views of urban sprawl, and modern living.
