Class description: Successful ‘Seeing’ in Outdoor Painting  

What does the act of seeing mean for an artist?  It is the most important part of the creative process for plein air painting.  Discover the keys to understanding and breaking down an outdoor scene.  We will explore the specifics of observing a subject, interpreting the visual elements, and executing it all onto canvas.  We will discuss the way the optics of the eye work as well as seeing light, form, atmosphere and space.  The fundamental principles of painting - composition, drawing, value, color, and edges will also be stressed.  Students will sharpen their focus by pushing for simplification of form, shape, and the larger masses.  There will be daily demos each morning covering the principles mentioned above, followed by plenty of  painting and personal instruction.   Individual attention will be a high priority as well as laughs and lots of enthusiasm!

Demonstrations will be in oil.

Oil & Acrylic are welcome.

Beginner to advanced students.

9am - 12pm  •  morning demo
