"Architecture & Southern Landscape"
March 14-16, 2019

In this workshop we will paint architecture in the southern landscape en plein air. We will discuss the plein air process and a few things to simplify that process by eliminating excessive gear and materials. In addition, we will have in depth conversations on perspective, using a viewfinder, composition selection, lighting, the notan sketch. Each day will begin with a demo and discussion and end with a critique of the days work. In between these session will be time for the students to draw, sketch and do the exercises. More time will be spent on finished paintings as the workshop progresses using the sketches and exercises done earlier in the workshop.

"Painting on Location - Taking your painting to the next level"
March 21-23, 2019

Throughout the workshop the instructor will demonstrate his approach to painting en plein air while aiding students on an individual and group basis. There will be critiques and assessments (how much depending on time allotment), so come prepared to ask questions, take notes and paint! It should be fun and relaxed but also a learning experience for all. Objectives: - Expand your purposes beyond the basics of shape, color, value and edges, into more complex principles and elements of design. - Develop your knowledge of wet-on-wet oil painting, and ways to use your tools. - Introduce you to painting larger canvases outdoors, and in multiple sessions. - Demonstrate how to add nocturnal painting to your repertoire.
