Whether you are a regular outdoor landscape painter or a brand-new beginner, this class is for you! Simplification and good design is the key to your success, and this workshop will keep you grounded in the elements that will make your paintings powerful: simplified, well-designed shapes, accurate color-values, exciting color temperature shifts and visual passages that will bring poetry to your work.
There will also be an emphasis on the use of spectral light, and how the French Impressionists used this to convey the luminous affects of outdoor, summer light. You will create 2 paintings and several small studies each day. This workshop will equip you with everything you need to have a summer of painting success!
Michelle Chrisman is an oil painter, but all mediums are welcome.
