Level: All – some plein air painting experience recommended
Medium: All (instructor demos will be in oil)
Our primary focus in this workshop will be on painting outdoors in the summer and simplifying the majesty of nature through composition, value control, and color. Topics will include exploring compositions, using value to create structure, and achieving color harmony, among others. We will also work on mixing clean color, creating a sense of depth and light, and keeping brushwork loose. Participants will paint on their own in between class time and submit work for feedback. There will be individual feedback, group critiques and instructor demonstrations in oil. This is primarily for students with at least some plein air painting experience, but beginners are always welcome.
