With John Clayton. Monday-Friday, July 25-29, 9am-12pm. Members: $380, Non-Members: $400.

This workshop will focus on the elements of outdoor painting and natural light.

Emphasis will be in learning to see color and light creating color relationship in the landscape. Viewing a short demonstration each day, students will learn techniques such as how to approach their painting of using a painting knife and incorporating values and design into each painting. We will go out each day and paint a different scene; organizing the landscape in the simplest way is essential to creating successful paintings.
