The Artist

Qiang’s approach to landscape painting will be demonstrated with particular focus on choosing dramatic compositions, observing the light distribution, and using bold and loose strokes to create a powerful and accurate representation on canvas. Using demonstrations and individual assistance, Qiang will explain his process of creating energetic paintings by manipulating values, colors, edges, and brushwork. Personal attention will be given to each student according to his or her current skill level and personal goals in art.

Qiang Huang (pronounced as Chong Wong) came from China. He has studied art from multiple master artists like Scott Burdick and Mark Boedges. His paintings show remarkable accuracy and expressive brush strokes. Since 2004 his paintings have been selected continuously for the Oil Painters of America’s National Juried Exhibitions. Qiang’s work has been featured in many art magazines including American Artist, Southwest Art, and Artist Magazine.
