Description
The best paintings start with the foundation of strong composition and design that can be contemplated more thoroughly in a studio environment, then they add the fresh brushwork of a plein air that reminds you of the light, atmosphere and excitement of the outdoor experience.

In this workshop, we start by going outside to gather information in order to experiment with a variety of compositions. We will break down the landscape into: line, shape, value, temperature of color, intensity of color, and quality of mark (texture). It’s important to understand each aspect and look at the landscape in this order. What inspired you to paint a particular scene? Concentrating on this one idea will help you through the painting process.

Students will begin the workshop with drawing excercises such as notans and value sketches using design markers. Painting exercises such as 15-30 minute color studies will reinforce these important elements and help students warm up. Later in the workshop, we will introduce color temperature and intensity in order to achieve atmospheric perspective. We will conclude the workshop with studio time, putting a composition together using our plein air color studies, notans and value studies. Kim will give pointers on how to proceed and visit with each student before moving on to their studio piece. Kim will offer demonstrations in both pastel and oil, and offer one-on-one help at your easel. We will also conclude most painting days with a group discussion in a positive environment so that we can learn from each other’s work.
