Using the landscape as inspiration, this workshop will enrich and expand your understanding of color. Explore the science and psychology behind it, your perception in regards to nature, as well as color theory and relationships.
Working with the medium of your choice, you will reference photos to create individual and rich landscape compositions that explore color interaction and perception. Painting techniques such as layering, glazing, optical color mixing, and broken brushstrokes will be demonstrated and discussed. Individual and group instruction, slide lectures on historical and modern approaches to color in the landscape, and critiques will augment this engaging workshop. Possible media include oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolor, colored pencil, and pastel.
