In this Landscape Painting from life workshop, the major elements of plein air landscape painting will be discussed and applied such as dark/light design, focal point, natural color in light, simplification, composition and emotional involvement. Attention will be given to the use of materials (oil and pastel), the differences between a sketch and a study and how this plein air information might be used for work in the studio.
There will be daily demonstrations of small “on the spot” pastel and oil paintings along with personal critiques and reviews of topics from the previous day. Students are asked to bring photographic reference and/or sketches for indoor use in the case of inclement weather. The workshop will be conducted between the hours of 9 am to 4 pm and possibly longer to paint late evening light or sunsets.
This workshop is for the intermediate to advanced painter.
