In each week of this 4-week class, artist Rick Fox will focus on different topics for handling the challenges of seeing and simplifying in plein air. Every session will be a combination of in-studio problem solving and plein air landscape painting. The studio work will involve specific directed limitations in anticipation of some of the core challenges, contradictions and joys of painting in the open, energized landscape. The Instructor will provide individual feedback weekly through the WAC online message board.
Dive into color through specific limitations as Rick addresses a variety of issues:
