Plein Air Essentials

Langley / Surrey
July 2 - 9 2016

July 2,3 and July 8,9

Class limit: 12

I will be drawing on over 15 years of plein air experience and teachings from some amazing mentors to present you with a solid and workable approach to working on location.

We will be starting with planning a painting on location with a value study and then working into color composition and finished field sketches.

Color mixing, design, logistics for outdoor painting and all other practical and artistic considerations will be included in the content of this workshop. Weather permitting, the entire class will be conducted in the field at various locations around the Langley/Surrey area. If there is inclement weather, an indoor facility or alternate date will be arranged.

It is my hope that students will take the five days in between the two weekend sessions to practice the learning a bring some sketches in for critique and feedback during the second weekend.

Plein air painting is a great adventure and also a tremendous tool for accelerating painting skills. It will sharpen your focus and teach you to edit visual information in order to create strong design and compelling paintings.
