Painting Landscapes: Outdoors
Lorenzo Chavez | Ability: Beginner, Intermediate
This workshop will focus on teaching the fundamentals of outdoor landscape painting using oil and/or pastel. Pastel and oil are great landscape sketching mediums—their consistency of color and quick handling are valuable when working outdoors. We will cover concept emphasis, shape, line, values, colors, edges and the importance of an emotional involvement. Atmospheric and linear perspective, understanding the natural light and color outdoors will be discussed and applied.
All workshop days will be spent in the field (weather permitting) where we can observe and study the outdoors first hand. Demonstrations and critiques will be conducted on a group and individual basis.
