Where In The World Is Plein Air

June 6th 2018

Prepare for an event surrounded in beauty and culture.

This event brings artists and collectors from all over the world, and they look forward with genuine anticipation to the opportunity to connect – not only with their fans and patrons but also with each other. Our sister galleries are more than just a collaboration of enormously talented artists from all walks of life and all styles of art. It’s a family. And this event is our family reunion. Our artists find no competition amongst themselves – in contrast when one of our pieces of art finds a new home, among the first to issue sincere congratulations, is another of our artists. They truly celebrate one another’s talents and be grateful for their contributions to the world.

In this workshop students will paint a landscape in the studio using photographs. The goal will be to create simple designs that have a strong foundation and a well thought out composition. Creating paintings with dramatic lighting that will command attention and breathe new life into your Studio work.

Linda will discuss how to paint from your focal point out while paying attention to values, composition and edges. This workshop will include instructor demonstrations and plenty of individual attention.  Photographs will be supplied by the teacher which includes subject matter from Grand Canyon, Desert vistas, interior forest and the high mountain scenes.

Students will learn techniques to skillfully handle paintings filled with sunlight and produce works that are bold and confident. Students will be covering tonal values, composition, brushwork, color saturation and focal points in OIL or ACRYLICS. Workshops will be conducted in a friendly, inspirational and positive environment. ALL SKILL LEVELS WELCOME!
