Capturing the Light in the Pastel Landscape

In this class we will explore impressionism and abstraction style while creating representational Plein Air landscapes filled with light. Daily demonstration will touch on underpainting techniques, color theory, and back painting techniques that add mood and emotion into the painting. The goal is always to expand on Plein Air to create landscapes that are rich and painterly by using edges, bold strokes and color to bring freshness to each painting. We will work one day weather permitting work en plein air.  Throughout the workshop we will practice creating, not duplicating, as we work to capture the essence of the scene in a way that expands your potential as an artist.
