COLOR AND THE IMPRESSIONIST LANDSCAPE
Joan Jardine 2 day workshop
The workshop will focus on addressing light and form.  In this class we will recognize light in our visual field and use this information to paint a landscape.  We will recognize large masses and then break them down to smaller masses using color.  We will discuss aspects of painting the landscape including composition and perspective, and working on first color notes to achieve a cohesive painting.  There are no formulas. Weather permitting, we will paint plein air.  Class will start with a demo and talk.  Students may use acrylic, but oil paints are preferred.
