The Natural World: Shape and Color

Oct 6-8, 2018 Sat., Sun., Mon (Columbus Day)
9:30 a.m-4:30 p.m.


The natural world has remained a potent source for artists throughout history. The focus of this workshop is simplifying complex vistas into distinct shapes of specific value and hue. A series of exercises with large brushes and palette knives will encourage this process. We'll begin with viewing contemporary and historical landscape painters and a discussion of the issues, tools and procedures unique to painting outdoors. Each day a one-sitting painting will be completed. Those who have painted outdoors many times or those doing so for the first time are welcome to join this intense workshop meant to energize your painting practice. Water based or oil paint may be used.
