"Direct, Simple, Fresh and Honest"
From sketch to finished pastel, you'll learn to paint it in a way that is direct, simple, fresh, and honest. You'll engage in fun exercises designed to focus on value, color, and shape. From that foundation, you'll explore edges, atmospheric perspective, color relationships, composition, and mood. We'll talk about ways to get the most out of your colors through varied pressure, layering color, and broken color. Most importantly you'll learn to paint with greater intention. Through demonstrations, group discussions, painting exercises, and plenty of individual instruction, you will learn to approach the landscape in enthusiasm and confidence.
We will split our time between plein air and studio painting.
