Description

Study the landscape by applying the fundamental concepts and techniques of plein air painting. We choose our subject by squinting to see the large mass, the “value” and its design graphically. Working with the mass, or, spots of color, one next to the other, we will allow ourselves to study color, atmosphere, and composition without getting caught up in the literalness of the subject or its details. Working quickly trains us to keep pace with the ever-changing landscape, to trust our instincts, and to be spontaneous. Working together, we will create paintings that are honest and fresh.

Please come prepared with a plein air easel, numerous small gessoed panels, and the limited palette paints listed in my material list, which sill be sent to participants. The limited palette suggested is perfect warm/cool choices of the primary colors, whether you are a beginner or experienced painter. Feel free to bring your favorite painting materials as well, as familiarity is important. The locale may be an in-town streetscape if conditions allow. (If in need of an easel or other materials, please contact RGS to borrow).  Meeting site to be determined.
