We will not work in plein air, in order to slow the pace down allowing time to focus on certain elements that will enhance your landscapes. Capturing distance, atmospheric perspective, neutralizing colors, sun/shadow play and patterns, three-dimensional form and focusing on good design. What is good design? How do we implement it into our work? These are some of the points we'll be addressing during the 3-day session.
Working from photographs has it's challenges. Many of us like the comforts of painting in the studio and understanding how to deal with the information on a photograph is important. We will address this with regards to color enhancement and adding emotion into your work. If you understand where a photo is deficient, it becomes easier to compensate on your canvas to capture a more realistic look.
I have been teaching for nearly a decade. All levels of experience are invited. Come laugh and join in the fun as I work with you to help you improve your landscapes.
