Explore an "in the field" approach to landscape as a subject matter. Discuss the genre and the themes often illustrated in it, including the concept of place, scale, the nature of light and the balance of human and nature. This one-week intensive course addresses topics like location selection, reading the weather and light and the process of working with the immediacy of changing conditions. As weather permits, you will work outdoors to make color studies in addition to producing finished paintings. Working in oil, acrylic or pastel, you will study proper grounds (surfaces) and techniques for efficient use of time, color mixing and how to use a loose drawing to form a strong composition. In case of inclement weather, the instructor will provide you with deatils about updates to the session.
