"Drawing to Mixed Media – On Site to Studio"
September 14-23, 2020
 

Drawing on location or “en plein air,” is a sensory experience that allows us to absorb the multi-layered aspects of a site: the temperature, sounds, warmth of the sun or cool of the shadows. Back in the studio we will work on Arches Oil paper with dry media – graphite, pastel, graphix chunks, charcoal and other materials provided for our experimentations. We will layer with thin veils of cold wax medium, fixing the dry medium and permitting additional embellishments with oil pastel. Our Day Trips will inspire us to see the region through the eyes of artists who have come before us, who all found the light, textures and temperature of this region to be the muse for their creative work.
