The sky is an ocean of atmosphere many miles deep – a transparent sea of air. As we look out into the vista, we may not be conscious of actually seeing the air, but we plainly see its effects on the landscape.  When painters begin to go outside and use natural lighting, they will find that nature’s value scale is immeasurably beyond their own puny value scale.  Learn how to make a true representation of any scene in nature using “relative” rather than “absolute” or actual values and color relationships. Expect concept lectures, demonstration and individual instruction as Doug winds students through the myriad of knowledge needed for artists to develop their skills for painting beautiful and believable space. Students will be painting from photos during the three-day workshop. Abandon all hope of rivaling Nature and set about the task of interpreting Her.
