Painting outdoors is wonderful, but one of the great challenges of Plein Air work is knowing how to gather sufficient information in a limited timeframe. Factoring in the lack of controlled lighting and changing weather conditions, things can get frustrating quickly for both experienced and inexperienced artist alike.
In this two day intensive workshop, Rob will introduce a simple and effective approach to capture a landscape effect in a short period of time.Basic elements of landscape painting will be covered such as: how to use your materials in the easiest and most efficient manner, how to select a subject, and how to develop a study from start to finish. Zeller will explain the use of thumbnail drawings to design a composition and then turn these thumbnails into oil painting.
The class is open to beginning through advanced artists but some previous drawing experience is highly recommended.
