Landscape Painting: Plein Air to Studio

Landscape Painting: Plein Air to Studio

This workshop is designed to help students make sense of the chaotic landscape. Since painting is about creating a work of art, learning to interpret what you see and not just copying what you see will be emphasized. Students will learn how to find a subject and then compose and simplify the information. Value, color, and edges will be used as students work towards larger studio paintings. Daily demonstrations by the instructor as well as individual attention will be given. Plein air studies, reference photographs, and sketches will become inspiration for larger studio work. Some experience in plein air is helpful, but there is something for everyone in this workshop. In the event weather prevents outdoor work, photographs will be used. Since painting from life is the intent of the workshop, still life subjects may be employed. www.annlarsen.com
