Capturing the Light in the Pastel Landscape with Clive Tyler
7/21/2017 - 7/23/2017
Evergreen Fire Protection Center
3 day class
Capturing the Light in the Pastel Landscape

DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS SATURDAY, JULY 8TH!

In this class we will explore impressionism and abstraction style while creating representational landscapes filled with light. Daily demonstrations will touch on underpainting techniques, color theory, and back painting techniques that add mood and emotion into the painting. The goal is always to expand on photographs to create landscapes that are rich and painterly by using edges, bold strokes and color to bring freshness to each painting. We will work two days from photographs provided by the workshop participants and one day, weather permitting, we will work en plein air. Throughout the workshop we will practice creating, not duplicating, as we work to capture the essence of the scene in a way that expands your potential as an artist.

The 3 day workshop is to be held July 21-23, 2017. The price of the workshop is $330 for current PSC members. Non-members cost is $375. Registration opens on April 1 at http://pastelsocietyofcolorado.org/shows.php.

Workshop: Clive Tyler will teach a 3 day workshop in conjunction with the exhibit.

Library 21c, 1175 Chapel Hills Drive, Colorado Springs, 80920
Take Risks and Develop Instincts That Will
Take Your Work to the Next Level!

Take this workshop if you want to learn a few new techniques but mostly if you'd like to know
some simple ways to improve your landscapes and find your own voice.
I'll cover:
my favorite surfaces, techniques and tools, compositional bugaboos, 3 practices to improve your work, my technology favs, and turning your lemons into lemonade.
Having come to art late in life, I felt an urgency to improve my work at a rapid rate. I've spent
time analyzing what's worked for me as well as many other successful artists. I'd like to share that
knowledge. My background teaching adults helps me distill and communicate my process. If
you'd like to take your painting to the next level, I'd love to share my playful approach with you!
