"A Conversation with The Landscape, a Pastel Workshop"
May 1-3, 2024
 

Really getting to know a landscape, instead of just identifying elements of it, makes us better, more sensitive landscape painters. Each landscape has a personality and something to say. It’s when we begin to really understand why a landscape draws us in and captures our imagination that we become better able to advance from simply copying the obvious aspects of the landscape to incorporating mood and atmosphere and those hard-to-define qualities that take a landscape painting from average to extraordinary. The studio portion of this workshop will focus on learning ways to create paintings that have their own voice, and the optional plein air day will focus on gathering thoughts and information, along with creating small paintings for future reference material.
