What better time than summer to go and paint outdoors? This zoom workshop will help prepare you to bring your easel outside and tackle Plein Air painting on your own. Designed to help students develop a better understanding of the fundamentals of color, composition, value, paint application, and atmospheric perspective for landscape painting. Demonstrations cover editing and simplification for impact, creating believable natural lighting effects, and ways to create more dynamic compositions. Class will include handouts and lists for students to get started in their outdoor painting experience.
