Capturing the Moment | ‘en Plein air’ Workshops at ARTFORM Dunmore East School of Art

The course will explore the landscape of the local area and how we can create quick and effective paintings. The time will be divided between outdoor and indoor sessions.

Day 1: The morning of the first day will be spent in the studio with a tutorial looking at the components of a successful painting including subject and composition. During the afternoon we will go out into the local area concentrating on the essential elements of a ‘plein air’ painting and getting the right information down quickly with drawing materials.

Day 2: Day 2 we will spend a short session in the studio looking at brushwork and technique in relation to rapid oil sketching. We will spend the rest of the day doing several oil sketches ‘en plain air’

Day 3: On day 3 we will look at the oftentimes difficult aspect of finishing a painting.

In the morning the tutor will go through the process of adding an additional ‘layer’ to the oil sketches and in the afternoon look at adding the finishing touches and balancing the final work.
